Calendar Items Deleted

New Contributor

Hundreds of calendar items were deleted without notice or prompting. The items are still being indexed in Outlook\Deleted Items\Calendar, but there isn't a way to access the contents of that folder to restore the items. Any help?

If you accidentally deleted calendar items in Outlook, you can often recover them from the Deleted Items folder.

Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open Outlook and go to the Deleted Items folder.
  2. Search for the calendar items that you want to recover.
  3. Right-click on the calendar item and then select Move > Other Folder.
  4. Select the Calendar folder and click OK

If you can’t find the deleted calendar items in the Deleted Items folder, you might be able to recover them from the Recoverable Items folder.

This is a hidden folder where items are moved when you delete them from the Deleted Items folder or when you permanently delete them by pressing Shift+Delete.

Here’s how you can recover items from the Recoverable Items folder:

  1. In Outlook, go to your email folder list and then select Deleted Items.
  2. On the Folder tab, select Recover Deleted Items.
  3. Select the calendar items that you want to recover and then select Restore Selected Items.

This should recover the deleted calendar items and move them back to your Calendar folder.


I hope this helps! 

Thank you!
