Please help me, I've lost two years of my Outlook Calendar files, and my Contact files also are gone; although, they now are found in a new I Cloud file that is set up inside my Outlook App on my desktop.
In June this year something popped up on my desktop asking if I'd like to Synchronize my Outlook with I Cloud. Being ignorant it sounded smart so I clicked to do it. When it finished all of my calendar files from January 1, 2020 through October 31, 2022 are now gone. All of my contact files were also gone, but as I said above they now reside in a new I Cloud file I never had before that was set up inside my Outlook app. I do all my health and life insurance work inside my Outlook App on my desktop, including emails and calendar appointments, and contact info. Every record of each person I've helped is recorded on those files. Now I'm missing everything I've done from January 1, 2020 through October 31, 2022. Please help me.

Hello, @Carl_Ehrlich, there are several ways to recover your information, you should try each of them step by step and see which will be helpful.
The first is recovering lost outlook data files from Deleted Item Folder. To do it, open the MS Outlook application, go to the email folder list, and after it, select the Deleted Items button.
The next step is checking the message in the Deleted Item folder, right-click the message and hit Move, now select Other Folder. If you want to move the messages back to your inbox, choose Inbox and confirm it by OK. Other ways are recovering lost outlook data files from the recoverable items folder and recovering deleted items from the server. To learn more about these ways, check this article.
Here is one more suggestion from me - you would never face a situation like yours if you learned more about Microsoft 365 backup solutions before.

Terry thank you for trying to help me, and I deserve the criticism about back up. My only excuse is I'm pretty old and not as savvy as the younger people. Still I'm in a real mess that is depressing me greatly, and if these calendar files are recoverable it is going to take someone talented to take over my computer and give it a go.
I did google the problem with this query: "my Microsoft Outlook files have disappeard after synching Microsoft Outlook with I Cloud" Basically I saw that this is not a new problem, many people have been hurt by letting I Cloud synch with Outlook by losing all Outlook Files, but I didn't see a clear cut way to recover the lost files. What is so weird is that all of the Outlook Contact files were gone, but only one nearly two year section of the calendar files. My Outlook Calendar files between November 2021 and today were still there, and the ones from 2015 all the way through the end of December 2019 are still there. How can this be; it makes no sense. The Contact files are still all there, but they are now in an I Cloud set of Contact files that all of a sudden now appear in my Outlook App. It is like the synch didn't complete, went bad, and it gives me hope that those Calendar files would now be showing in I Cloud if the process had simply completed.
I out of desperation paid for some online service a few days ago called Justanswer, and a guy from India took over my computer and felt the I Cloud never finished synching. So he re did the process to synch it. That didnt bring in the Calendar files that went missing.
Please I really need some help. Can you help me? Do you know someone really sophisticated who would hear this problem and know in a heartbeat how to get my calendar files back? I'm three quarters of a century old as of last March 30, I can't stop working and get really tired daily, but I am in a lot of difficulty heading into my Medicare work Season on October 15th if I can't access those lost files.
