I have W7, Use Outlook for e mail. I was trying to move an incoming e mail to a folder (lets say Folderwww) by dragging and dropping it into the folder in the left navigation pane. Somehow the whole folder has disappeared. It is not in the deleted file. I cannot find it as a sub folder. Any suggestions?
When this has happened to me in the past, it has usually ended up as a sub-directory of one of my other folders. In Outlook 2003, I have an "All Mail Folders" list in the left hand column. Within that list, any folders with a sub-directory have a + sign against them.
Thanks folks. Co incidentally I had a major crash following last nights W7 updates. The recycle bin is not the culprit. I have looked on folders to find sub directories but so far not found. Will report back after more checks. Tried using Widows explorer but no luck.
I usually back them up daily to another drive. Had some rather disturbing medical news recently so have been a bit remiss, but worth a try. The problem is how to get at the file. I keep all my Outlook on my Data File partition in F:\My Documents\My Outlook. In there, and on its back up in I\Backup of my documents\My Outlook is only am "Archive" folder. How to explore it?
