I did two things tonight that could have caused this:

1. I went into Communications History within BCM and deleted everything that
was in there

2. I upgraded to SP2

I already deleted the "Deleted Items" from BCM - so if the fix was in there,
it's too late...

Thanks in advance for any help/ideas on how to fix this.

Hi CJ, can you try going into the "Deleted Items" folder under the BCM
tree (in Folders List) and see if you have any of your communication
history items there? If so, drag them back to the BCM Communications
History folder, and they should be back.

I don't think upgrading to SP2 would have caused this... because if it
were the reason, you would have seen an uproar on the forum... :)

Good luck!

John,

I had already deleted all of the items from BCM Deleted Items...it never
even crossed my mind that PROJECTS and PROJECT TASKS would be a communication
history item? Not only because it doesn't seem logical, but because in
quickly looking through the items in there, they all appeard to be emails.

I know I'm "delete happy" - but this is a bit frustrating. I don't know if
I'm mad at myself for not understanding how the program works better, or at
MS - it seems like you have to be so careful, one touch of the wrong button,
everything is gone without so much as a warning "hey, if you delete this,
you're also deleting projects and tasks."

Just doesn't seem logical.

Any other way to recover these items?
