Last month I set up a new Folder within Outlook. Today I opened up my Outlook went to open my Folders, but I'd deleted one of them by mistake. I figured I would just open up Recycle Bin, but it wasn't here. I looked into Recover Deleted Items; that was gone to. Then I looked at Exchange (Office 365) and couldn't find that either.

Where else could I look?  It's got a be somewhere.

Thank you.

When you deleted it, it is most likely Outlook or Exchange did a final deletion.

It's got a be somewhere   <-- I am not sure why.

Did you expand the Deleted Items folder? Normally when you delete a folder it becomes a subfolder under Deleted Items root.
