Records that are deleted in Outlook are moved to the Deleted Items Folder. To restore the deleted data, please follow these steps:

NOTE: Do not close Outlook until the data has been restored. Outlook has an option to clear the Deleted Items folder on exit

1. Click on the Folder List icon in the bottom left corner of the Outlook window

2. Click on the Deleted Items folder (which looks like a recycle bin)

3. Find your records that should be in this folder and simply drag and drop these in to the correct folder. i.e. If you are restoring contacts, highlight any contacts in the Deleted Items folder and drag them in to the Contacts folder

4. Back up your database
