When I initially installed Office Home and Business 2010 I set up a number of folders within Outlook. These were visible and accessible for a period of time then I noticed they had vanished. I have tried searching for them but they are nowhere to be found.

You might need to click on the "folder list" icon on the bottom left to expand the folder view.

Here's a couple commands you can try to get them back (run form a command prompt, with Outlook closed):

  • outlook.exe /resetfolders

Restores missing folders for the default delivery location.

  • outlook.exe /resetnavpane

Clears and regenerates the Navigation Pane for the current profile.
