Can you verify that they are in the dumpster (recover deleted items).

she has items in the 'deleted items' but they seem to be her appointments and no e-mails which is strange.

Check from OWA as well. OST file is a local copy of the users mailbox.

In that case, you will have to restore the mailbox from last night's backup.

You can create a RSG and restore without disrupting your production and then merge the specific mailbox from RSG to the production.
