Outlook 2000 -  Folders I have created are gone

Some of my folders I have created in Outlook are gone.
Is there a way to see if they are still there and re-attach to them so they show up in Outlook?
I think this happened before, and I had to go find them again and click on something so they
would show up in my Outlook 2000 client again.

    Are these folders within a PST file (personal folder) or mailbox, or do you mean the entire PST file or mailbox is gone?

    Dont' think they are the PST files.
    We had to recover our mail system. it had crashed.
    All of our mail came back. However, there are a couple of users when they open outlook, some of the folders they created are gone??

    As it turns out, these are public access folders.
    Don't see them anymore at the desktop.
    How do I find them???

    Accepted Solution

    Look in the folder list (view->folder list) and you should have a public folder option.  Once you have identified the specific public folder you are looking for you can add it to your "favorite" public folders and create a shortcut to it.
