Hello,

I recently recreated an outlook profile for a user, as they couldn't access a subfolder. The error message reported that Outlook could not access the folder path. When I then loaded Outlook 2007 the subfolders were missing. Can you please advise how the folders can be retrieved?

Thanks

The subfolder was made by the user in his mailbox. The problem was intermittent.

Can you check the original PST that you had please - take a backup copy of the file and open it using Outlook.

as shown in the error image:
you do not have permission to read / right that folder
the location (Q:\Exchange) is not available / disconnected.

just right click the folder (exchange), properties, permission and give the user / users / everyone a read and write access.

Right click the file and under general, ensure under Advanced, there is no button called Unblock.  if it's there, click it.

Go to Security tab, advanced, owner and take ownership.  The errors show file permission issues :)

Alternatively, the PST is corrupt.
