Restore from backups. I have had it do that before, fortunately I operate with an Exchange server, so it was easy enough to get the content back.

Greetings, attipa !

If you are not on an Exchange, and if you do not have backup PST file, the old information is lost.  

To check for backups, do a search  for *.OST and archive.pst files.  OST and PST files are located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. They are hidden files. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Best wishes!
