When you say deleted, how did you delete it?  Did you delete it from within Outlook, or did you delete it from its storage location by hitting delete?

Check your Deleted Items bin if associated with Exchange.  Or, your Trash Bin if another email service.  In Exchange, deleting a folder simply moves to Deleted Items folder (as subfolder).  

So it would help to know which email service this happened under.

I am assuming you mean you closed your personal folder within Outlook.

The default directory for PSTs are stored in the following path:

C:\Users\YOURACCOUNT\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\

You can go to File -> Data File Management -> Data Files -> Add... -> 1st option -> OK -> Select your PST.

By default Outlook should open the path mentioned above. Good luck.
