I have Outlook 2007, I am not on an exchange server. I deleted a folder of

tasks and it is not showing in my deleted items folder. Thankfully my DI

folder was emptied this morning and I only have a few items in it, so I know

I'm not overlooking the file. I know that it's there, I can see it in the

subfolders list when I click on "folder size" under the "properties for

personal folder". I tried sorting the DI foldler by Icon as was suggested,

but that's not working. Any suggestions?? Please help!

On the left side of the screen, where all the folders are listed, is there a

box with a + next to the Deleted Items folder? If so click it and the

deleted folder should be there.

I figured it out and thought I'd post the solution in hopes that it will help

someone else. In my deleted items folder there were only mail items. No

amount of resorting or grouping would pop up task or calendar items that were

deleted. There was no plus sign to show other folders. I used the "Go" menu

between "view" and "tools". Select "folder" (the shortcut is Ctrl+Y) and

that brings up the folder tree. From there you can access the deleted item.

Once it's open you can right click and choose "move to" and put the file back

in it's rightful place. So happy to have my file back!!
