Use OWA to view the Recovery Deleted Items. It is a little tricky to do as you have to get the URL just right.

If the folder was a sub folder, then you have to look at the folder above it.
So for example if it was public/contacts/sales/uk and it was uk that was deleted, then you have to look at public/contacts/sales.

Therefore the complete url would be http://servername/public/contacts/sales/?cmd=showdeleted

Thanks a million Sembee, the link is vital in this one, and pay attention to the "?cmd=showdeleted" that has to be added to the end of the URL in OWA.

Thanks very much indeed.
