Archive .pst - Why my archive has only Inbox folder?

Hi All,

I have Outlook 2010 with Windows 7 pro installed on my network machine and we have an Exchange Server 2008. I have added in Outlook my Archive folder which I can see only my Inbox on this archive. Where is my send, deleted, items gone?

Can you please advice?

Hello mallony,

You archive is not showing send, deleted because firstly you have to export the files into a .pst file by going to File / Import export / Export to file / Personal folder file .pst.   When using this method the emails show up once imported back into outlook.

Instead of it if the archived folder doesn't shows up the information then, maybe your Archive.pst file has been corrupted. So to recover that PST file use Scanpst.exe to recover that file. If it is not repaired with the help of Inbox Repair Tool then try to use a third party tool. Use Outlook Recovery Tool to repair that PST file.  After recovering that file it will show you the other contents of it.

When archiving, make sure you didnt only select the 'Inbox' folder to archive, If you select your email address which you can see above the inbox folder, then all the folders underneath it will be archived.
