If you deleted a meeting from the specified Calendar/Contact folder by accident in Microsoft Outlook, you can restore it from Delete Items folder with following steps.

Step 2: Open the Deleted Items folder, find out the deleted meeting or contact, and then drag it to the original Calendar/Contact folder.

    What about multiple appointments? Like I managed to delete a couple of years? They are in the "Deleted Folder".

    The "Recover Deleted Items" may not be present in the newest Outlook versions. Instead, locate the item via "Advanced Find":


    Here's how to get to Advanced Find" Click inside the "Search Calendar" box (but don't type anything) to get the "Search" ribbon to appear on top. Then click "Search Tools" (picture of screwdriver and wrench), and select "Advanced Find".

    If your advanced find is successful, you will see the invitation to the meeting in the list. Double click it. Click the "Accept" check mark, and the appointment will be restored.
