recover deleted (sub)folders using MFCMAPI

Oct 29, 2014 at 12:46 PM
I SHIFT+deleted an Outlook folder containing messages, which means it should be in the "Deletions" folder. Using MFCMAPI, I'm able to see the deleted messages, but I can't figure out how to recover the actual folder. Ideally, I would like to recover the deleted folder and the messages which it contained at the same time.

I opened the message store, right-clicked on "Root Container" and selected Other Tables > Deleted Subfolders, but the list was empty.

Any help on this is appreciated.

Exchange no longer saves deleted folders - just the items which were in them. It is not possible to recover a deleted folder, nor is it possible to determine which folders originally contained the deleted messages.
