Restore deleted sub-folders in Outlook

By dcbeckster ·
In Outlook 2003 I created a sub-folder under a main folder. The main folder is a .pst data file. I accidentally deleted the sub-folder but when I tried to restore it from my deleted items folder in the main folder, there wasn't anything there. I have searched the Outlook help files but nothing; I also did a search on Google for a solution but to no avail. Does anyone have an idea on how to restore a deleted sub-folder when it doesn't appear in the deleted items folder of the parent folder?
Thanks for any help or assistance.

Yeah, look to see if you have a backup.pst file saved on your hard drive. If so; do an import within outlook pointed to that file.

If the folder is not there do a search for *.pst from the windows search menu and try doing the same from any other pst files that you find.

Thank you for your response. The only problem is that I believe with Outlook 2003 you can add a sub-folder to an existing .pst that somehow sets it up as a parent / child relationship so-to-speak. So when I deleted the sub-folder (child) the .pst file is still there but without the sub-folder. I'm trying to restore the sub-folder (child).
Thanks again for your feedback!

Favorites Folder accidential deletion

by rebecca davis In reply to Restore deleted sub-folde ...

I deleted my "unread items" folder under favorite folders. Did this also delete the emails that were in this folder? We I look at the inbox it appears that there are unread emails that are older than today.
