Recover Deleted Items


Topic last modified: 2011-03-19

If your system administrator has enabled the Recover Deleted Items feature, you can use it to recover items that have been emptied from the Deleted Items folder.

How do I recover a deleted item?

  1. Right-click the Deleted Items folder in the Navigation Pane.

  2. Click Recover Deleted Items.

  3. Select the item you want to recover by clicking it in the Recover Deleted Items list.

  4. Click Recover deleted items to recover the item or Delete to purge the item.

What else do I need to know?

  • You can also right-click any item in the Recover Deleted Items window to recover it or purge it.

  • You can use the search window to search for specific items that have been deleted.

  • Purging an item doesn't remove it from backups that were made before the item was deleted.

  • After you purge an item, you can't recover it using Recover Deleted Items.
