Recovering data great than 1 year old in Outlook 2002 Calendar

Posted on 2006-06-21

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am running Outlook 2002 - looking back at my calendar the entries cut off in June 2005 - I'd like to look up entries from 2003. I'm gobsmacked if by design this data is gone (can't use up much space after all) but cannot find out how to get at it or at least how to change things so that nothing gets lost going forward.

Help much appreciated.

odd, but I wonder if you have auto archiving turned on; but I believe its set to a default of 90 days.

See my other query posted a few mins after this one.  For the reasons stated there I have not archived for over 2 years (auto archive is set to run every 14 days but when prompted I have said no).

sounds like 2 years worth of issues literally; you may want to make a backup of you PST file before you start on any troublshooting pocess.  Depending on what has happened, using a 3rd party recovery tool may be in order.  The two MS tools may be able to do something.  Under Help... Detect and Repair will repair commonplace data structure corruptions and I have users use that as a 1st resort for what appears to be unexplainable corruptions, 2nd is scanpst.exe; but both depending on the circumstances may delete unrepairable links (hence the backup).  I don't usually use 3rd party recovery apps as step 3 is restore from backups for Exchange based data for me.

If it get to that; I defer to someone else to recommend a 3rd party app.

To recover and get 4 or 8 copies screams corruption of the PST file.

I ran these and it seems that the problem is solved.  Thanks

On my separate query (duplication) I think it was I just was not using archive properly.
