How to Recover Permanently Deleted Items in Outlook


I want to recover a permanently deleted item in Outlook.


  • Outlook


  • In Outlook, go to your email folder list, and then click Deleted Items.
  • Make sure Home is selected, and then click Recover items recently removed from this folder.

  • Select the item you want to recover, click Restore Selected Items, and then click OK.

Where do recovered items go?    When you recover items from the Recoverable Items folder, they are moved to the Deleted Items folder. So after you recover an item, you can find it in your Deleted Items folder and then move it to another folder. If you recover a calendar appointment, contact, or task, it's also moved to the Deleted Items folder. From there, you can move it back to your calendar, contact list, or tasks. To find recovered items, just search for them in the Deleted Items folder.

How long are items kept in the Recover Deleted Items? After 30 days the items in the Recover Delete items will be purged.
