Lost (deleted?)folder on outlook.com

Q: Lost (deleted?)folder on outlook.com

I'm using outlook.com (preview) and I somehow lost a folder. How do I get it back?

Preferred Solution: Lost (deleted?)folder on outlook.com

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I change Outlook so that all my deleted files are deleted rather than being sent into the "Deleted" folder?

There must be a way?

User came in with a receiving email issue and to make a long story short I found that his inbox and all subfolders including sent, junk ect. are subfolders of the trash folder.(deleted Items) I tried to back up, clean(glary utils) and reinstall but the backup reordered the folders the way they were. I will uninstall again and hand build the folders and subs if need be but I was hoping someone here might know a fix before I spend 2 or more hours creating and moving from imported folders (home based company with 33000+ emails)

Any ideas appreciated.

Also noteworthy is that Norton failed after the hearbleed patch and had to be completely removed and reinstalled. the reinstallation of Norton was AFTER trying to repair Outlook.

A:lost deleted items folder

Read other 6 answers

My wife this morning reported that an important folder vanished - it wasn't in Recycle, it wasn't Hidden. She had been using it, and viewing content from a professional CD-Rom which seems innocent enough.

She's no computer expert, but canny enough not to shift-delete something without realising it.

I did searches for the missing folder and some of the files that were in it. None of them showed up even when I searched the whole hard drive!

I ran a free-downloaded program, Recuva, to try to locate the folder, but could not see it. Then realised my mistake - perhaps the new program was written on the missing files - but it's only a 3.4MB program. It couldn't have covered all the files, surely.

Unfortunately the folder is recent and there hasn't been a backup for a while (I know - bad, bad )

ANy clues as to how this folder may have vanished off the face of the desktop?

Any clues on effective recovery tool?


A:Lost folder, NOT deleted, on Dell Inspiron desktop

Hello John and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sometimes malware can cause files and folders to go missing. Have you run a full scan with your updated resident anti-virus program? Since no anti-malware program is 100% effective 100% of the time (if there was such a thing we'd all be using it) you could also use the free Malwarebytes as a second on-demand scanner.


If you're familiar with editing the registry, you could open regedit and search for the name of the missing folder. If regedit finds your search value a file path should appear at the bottom of the regedit screen. Use the F3 key to continue searching the registry for any other values containing the missing folder's name. When you've finished searching the registry you could use the start menu search box to manually look for the various file paths. NOTE: Do not make any changes to the registry. Just use it as a search tool.

I recently purchased the new MS Office 2007 - Home and Student Edition. I was upgrading from a previous MS Office 2003 Professional Edition. I used to work out of my home and required MS Office Pro in those days and then when MS brought out Office 2007 - I no longer needed the MS Office Pro license (as I was now working at the office full-time) so I bought the Home and Student Edition for my home computers (although I bought 10 licenses of the MS Office Pro edition for my office.) I was constantly getting a message when I would try and download templates and clipart from MS website that my previous 2003 version was the professional version and my upgrade was the Home and Student version so it wouldn't let me download anything. I did some research and discovered that the best way to handle this would be to delete MS Office Pro -2003.
YIKES - I did not realize that MS Outlook was part of the Pro edition and I lost all my emails, addresses, plane tickets, theatre tickets, everything that I had filed in my emails. Do you have any idea how I might be able to get this back - I still have unused licenses of the MS Office 2007 Pro Edition if that would help. Any suggestions that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

My computer today was acting up, it was lagging and stalling a bit. So at first I rebooted it and it was still lagging, so I shut it down. After being off for a couple mins I restarted it and left, I came back about an hour later, logged in (Win 2000) and noticed that some of my applications that were kept open had been lost. For example, I have Apache installed on my computer. When the computer logged in it could not find the ApacheMonitor file which loads at startup. I then opened up Outlook Express and ALL my emails - inbox, outbox, and deleted were GONE. Is there anyway to get them back? I've been told no because I'm on a FAT32 HD. The thing is that my computer did not lockup, it just lagged a bit, I did no force bootdowns. If you need anymore information please let me know. I hope I did not lose all the emails....

A:Lost all Outlook Express emails (Inbox, Sent, Deleted)

hopefully you only lost the asssociation with the correct folder location, not the folders themselves

open windows explorer to :
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{bunch of numbers & letters}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

you should see a bunch of .dbx files containing your email files

if so,
then open Oe and go to: tools, options, maintenance, store folder - and make sure OE is pointed there

Have you emptied the "recycle bin"? If not, try checking your pst file might still be there so you can retrieve it. Note that anything that you delete from your computer will be dump on the recycle bin, this files or folders will remain on the recycle bin unless you empty it.

I recently deleted my 'deleted' folder in MS Outlook 2007. After finding no helpful information from Microsoft on how to restore it, I uninstalled and reinstalled Office. The deleted folder is now in the folder list but it will not move mail that I delete to it.

When I access my email through my college's website I made sure that deleted mail goes to the deleted folder. When I delete a message on that website, it moves it to my deleted folder both on the website and in outlook. But when I delete it through Outlook, it doesn't move it.

How do I set my deleted mail to go to the deleted folder?
Also why is there a trash folder? Is this different than the deleted folder?

I have a user that created a shortcut from an attachment that was stored in an Outlook Secure folder, but now it's deleted.

The folder name is OLKC5 ( I realize they are completely random) but the only folder now is called OLK52. I have tried two popular undelete software packages, but neither display the folder that was deleted. I'm pretty sure the last "Windows Clean-Up" that was deleted the folder, although this file had over 4-years of information stored in it, yup.

Possible the file was renamed by Windows or overwritten, which is why the recovery software cannot recovery the folder?

I just switched from POP to IMAP for Outlook 2007. I see that there was a thread about my issue prior that is closed.

I delete a message and then it puts the strikeout line and then since I have it set to "Group message for deletion" it groups the deleted message at the bottom. Problem is they end up being deleted and are not in any trash or deleted folder.

I want to be able to manually delete them as I still refer back. Can you tell me how to set it up so that they go into a trash/deleted folder and stay there until I delete them?

Hello, I deleted the "Deleted Items" folder in Outlook 2007 and I can't seem to find out how to reinstall it, any ideas?

A:Outlook 2007 "Deleted Items" folder

Deleting that folder should not even be an option....I would just like to know how you did that.

Probably the only way is to create a new personal folder which will have a Deleted Items in it. Go to the tools then email accounts. go to your account and look for the folders tabs. remnae the existing personal folder "old personal folder". Then create the new folder. Then go back to the outlook interfacetransfer you e-mails over to the new personal folder. Once your sure everything is moved over delete the "old folder".

When I delete an email in Outlook 2003, it doesn't move the deleted items to the recycle bin (deleted items folder). It will give me the prompt, "Are you sure you want to permanently delete the selected items?" If i click 'yes,' the email will not be moved to the deleted items folder where I could recover it, it is just totally gone. Basically when I delete an email from the Inbox, it skips the 'Deleted Items' folder all together. How do I get deleted emails to show up in the 'Deleted Items' folder first, before they are permanently deleted.

I'm aware of the Tools>Options>Other Tab "Empty the Deleted Items folder upon exiting" check box, and it is unchecked, besides my problem is not upon exiting Outlook.

A:Outlook 2003 deleted items folder

Hi route66

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Have you tried creating a new Personal Folder and seeing if the same behavior exists in the new Personal Folder as well?

If it does, try creating a new Profile.
If it doesn't, then you can make the new Personal Folders the default Personal Folders.
You can then either copy the folders from the old Personal Folders into the new Personal Folders or keep two Personal Folders open in Outlook 2003.

You can have several Personal Folders open in Outlook 2003.

Create a new Personal Folder (.pst) file and make it the default delivery location.

File > New > Outlook Data File
Name the new .pst file.
It should open in Outlook 2003.

Copy a message over to the Inbox of the new Personal Folders and see if the deletion process works properly in the new Personal Folders.
**To make the new Personal Folders the default delivery location:

Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts
In the drop down field for: Deliver new e-mail to the following location:
Select the new Personal Folders (.pst) file.

Close and restart Outlook 2003 for the changes to go into effect.

With Outlook 2003 closed, create a new Profile,

Change the selection to: Prompt for a Profile to be used

If when cleaning out folders I accidently deleted a folder on my outlook express ..can I get it back?? I enabled my restore and tried to restore it to last night date adn still no folder...How can I find and get it back!
Faithful One


I think you're OK as long as you didn't empty your "deleted Items" folder. I have done this many times in both Outlook and OE. If you have emptied your "Deleted Items" folder, I think you're hosed.

If you don't already have it setup to view the folders, do so--View>Folder.

Click on your "Deleted Items" folder to display its contents.

If your accidentally deleted folder is in there, simply click and drag it back to where it should be. Normally this would be under the Personal Folders area.

Good luck.

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums

DBXtract will extract all the emails that you have deleted - not just the ones you see in the OE folder but whatever is on your hard drive. Read about it here and download. Donation freeware.


Once you have gotten all the emails and are satisfied, then the DELETED ITEMS.DBX file can be erased. Once you erase that, all the emails sitting in the folder (in OE) will also be erased and you should be able to access all your folders.

With XP, the DBX files are hidden files. To find the location, in OE click Tools, Options. Then on the Maintenance Tab click the Store Folder button. Close OE. Open Windows Explorer to that location and delete the Deleted Items.DBX file. When you open OE the next time, it will automatically create a brand new DBX file.

Due to my ignorance , I deleted an entire desktop folder OUTLOOK EXPRESS and its saved email contents.

Though the HD never got to 15% free , Mcsft Defrag ran partially .

Next , I ran Puran Defrag program .

Then , ran Defraggler Program .

In spite of my 3 attempts to defrag , the 3 defrag programs did not seem to effectively complete defragging HD.

When my attempt to uninstall HP printer via Add/Remove programs did not seem to work ,
I followed internet instructions to go into registry and remove HP printer items.
Somewhere along the way , I also followed instructions to : " change permissions" so that I could re-install HP printer.

One of our users accidentally deleted an entire public folder (she meant to delete one contact but had the folder highlighted instead of the one contact). When we try to recover that folder by using the "Restore Deleted Items" in Outlook, we receive an error that she does not have permission to do so. Only 4 users had permission for that folder, and we receive that error on all 4 user's computers when we attempt to recover it. I've tried to recover it from my computer (I have administrative rights on our network), but that folder doesn't even appear in the list of available folders to recover. The person that deleted it was owner of that contact folder, so I don't know why she wouldn't have permission to recover it. Anyone have any ideas?

I have a user who deleted a folder full of emails. We have a retention policy in place and I can see deleted emails to recover, but I would like to recover the folder structure with the emails inside.

A:Recover Deleted Folder Outlook 2010 connect to Exchange

Which version of Exchange are you using? From what I can recall, you might not be able to do this without third-party software. The first try should going into the user's Outlook, clicking on the Deleted Items folder, choose the Folder tab at the top of the screen, and then click on the Recover Deleted Items button. If the folder shows up in there, all well and good. If not, you may have to restore the e-mails and then have the user sort them into the folder again. After all, it was their problem and shouldn't become your crisis.

As an aside: in our organisation we use ShadowProtect for our backups, and also purchased ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange (GRE) to afford us the possibility of restoring individual e-mails and/or folder structures. This has worked very well indeed, and saved a lot of headaches when users do what they do best ;-)

A:Outlook automatically sends email to Deleted Items folder

Couple questions.

1) Are you using Full Outlook or Outlook express?
2) Do the times in the deleted folder have any weird tagging on them (in the subject line)?
3) Is this connecting to an exchange server (like at work) or are you just using this for personal emails. (ie what email address are you getting email on )
4) do you remember any thing that you did recently in changing settings/ installing any new software, etc. . .

I have somehow lost the INBOX dbx folder in Outlook, a new folder has appeared named box.dbx with a create date of today.
If I do a file search with the word INBOX, my old folder is showing together with the new one.
If I try opening it it justs opens Outlook in the new Inbox file?

Can anyone help, have I lost all my eMails?

Also why is the new folder showing box.dbx and not Inbox?
There appears to be no way of renaming it!

Any assitance will be most welcome
