How to restore deleted meetings/contacts in Outlook?
Normally when we delete an email, the email is moved to the Deleted Items folder in Mail view automatically. However, when we delete a meeting or contact by accident, we can’t find out it any longer. In this article, I will show you how to restore deleted meetings or contacts in Microsoft Outlook.
Office Tab: Enable Tabbed Editing and Browsing in Office, Just Like Chrome, Firefox, IE 8/9/10.
Classic Menu: Bring Old Menus and Toolbars Back to Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019.
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 1: Open the folder view in the Navigation Pane with pressing the Ctrl + 6 keys in a meantime.
Step 2: Open the Deleted Items folder, find out the deleted meeting or contact, and then drag it to the original Calendar/Contact folder.
Note: If you are not familiar with dragging items to other folders, you can right click the deleted meeting or contact, and then select the Move > Other Folder.
And in the coming Move Items dialog box, click to select the original Calendar/Contact folder, and then click the OK button.
This method can also recover deleted appointments, task, notes, etc. in Microsoft Outlook.
As you know, if you have permanently deleted a meeting or contact in Microsoft Outlook, you won’t find out the deleted meeting or contact in the Deleted Items folder. Actually, you can still restore the permanently deleted meetings or contacts with the Recover Deleted Items feature.
Step 1: Shift to the Mail view, and then click the Recover Deleted Items button on the Folder tab.
Note: In Outlook 2007, you can click the Tools > Recover Deleted Items.
Step 2: In the opening Recover Deleted Items dialog box, find out and select the meeting or contact you have permanently deleted, and then click the Recover Deleted Items button. See screen shot below.
Note: This method only works with Exchange accounts.
