How do you Retrieve an Archived file in Outlook?


How do you retrieve an Archived file or email in Outlook?



1 Solution
You would need to open the archive folder in Outlook to access this content.  You can find the file name and path by right clicking the folder that the information was archived from and choosing properties, then autoarchive tab.  It will either indicate the path/filename that is used or it will say to use the default settings.  If it says default settings, go to TOOLS->OPTIONS->OTHER tab->AUTOARCHIVE.

In either case, not the path and file name.

In Outlook click FILE->OPEN->OUTLOOK DATA FILE and navigate to that file.

After opening it, it will appear in your folder list where you can access the contents.  When done with it you can right click on the File in the folder list and choose to close it.

If yoiu run into problems doing this reply back with the problem and the version of Outlook you are using because the steps differ a bit.
