Find a misplaced folder in Outlook 2007 Personal Folders

Postby dbessis » Sun Feb 03, 2013 9:54 pm

I use Outlook 2007 with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.
The folder "D" in Outlook Personal Folders has disappeared somewhere.
How can I locate it with X1Professional 6.7.1?
Thank you,

Is X1 indexing this PST?

What is folder D? A mail folder?

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Folder D is just one of my folders labelled A,B,...,Z. I misplaced it and it is now hidden somewhere inside
an other folder or more likely sub-folder.
Yes, X1 indexes pst.

I already had this problem in the past and X1 gave me the solution but I forgot it.

If your folders are alphabetically named, then you should be able to narrow down the search by using "D" in the "Folder name" slot.

Then search on that folder and you will find it somewhere in the list alongside those that contain D, bit not at the start. "Send", for example, will be after the D hits.

Then, if you also have the "Folder path" slot visible, you will see where the D folder sits in the hierarchy.

If these columns are not visible, right click the columns slot at the top, where it offers to sort your hits, and go to the "Columns" slot and add them.

I made some progress with your help.
1. I made the "Folder Path" visible.
2. However when I type the name of the folder in the "Folder Name"
The "Folder Path" slot tells me that the lost folder is located in "Local Folders"

I have no idea where could be located these mysterious "Local Folders".

Thank you for your help,

Are you using Exchange?

I'm not familiar with how that works.

dbessis - This should be fairly simple from this point.

You state you can see the moved/misplaced folder. Select it in the X1 Results list then use the X1 Post Search action of "Go to Folder" to open Outlook in the folder the misplaced item is now found in. Or, use the Move to Folder Post Search action to simply move the misplaced item from "Local Folders" into the Folder location where this item is normally stored.
