I would suspect that they have been moved by the autoarchive "feature" of outlook.  You can find the location of the autoarchive folder by following the instructions in the following webpage:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/automatically-move-or-delete-older-items-with-autoarchive-HA010105706.aspx#BM2

In step four, check the item 6 in the picture.  This is normally not located in MyDocs, but inside of appdata folders.

hi sterlingmcclung,

i did check my archive settings it is in apps data and archive folder is there, but that is for the current pst file whereas the sent items whcih i need is an old pst file.

Then I am afraid you are out of luck. You cant recover sent items from that far back from anywhere else.
