Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

Archiving is only for Emails, and Calendars, not Contacts.

Check first the location of your Calendars archive and if Archiving is actually set.

Click the File tab.

Under Mailbox Cleanup, click Cleanup Tools.

Click Archive.


Click Archive this folder and all subfolders.

If you created additional calendars, selecting this setting will archive items from those calendars as well.

In the folder list, click Calendar.

Is it set for Archiving?

Click Archive this folder and all subfolders. WHICH IS THIS FOLDER?


Is it set for Archiving? HOW IS IT SET FOR ARCHIVING?
You will have set up Archiving if it has been occuring,

did you ever carry out these steps Roger?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Never

Then they are not being archived Roger.

Archiving only occurs when you set it up via the steps I initially gave.

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

You mean NOTHING is archived?


If material is ALWAYS there then it should be recoverable???

No, not unless you set up Archiving, items in Outlook remain where they were intially placed.

Unless you Deleted the items, then they will still be there.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Then WE are going to find them right now????

Roger,

What are you actually missing?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


I want the archives of past years

There are no archives of past years Roger, If this is the same Outlook Program you have always been using, then they are still in the Calendar.

How long have you been using this outlook on this computer?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Over five years


I had one hard drive crash a few months ago.


The back up is still on Carbonite and Ic an get it if my present pst file doesn't have all data


Tell me what to DO

ok, which version of Outlook is this.

And can you copy the PST to your computer from Carbonite please?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Outlook 2010


I am sure I can get the old pst from Carbonite


 


Can you make it in the form of an Archived Calendar I have seen on other machines?


 


Can you do THIS issue as a calendar as far back as possible, NOW??

Yes, you do this.

In Outlook, Click on File, Info, Account Settings then Account Settings,

Click on the Data Files tab, then on Add. Make sure that Outlook data file(.pst) is highlighted and click on OK.

Browse to your .pst file and click on OK.

You should now find your mail in Outlook, listed below your email folders, and the calendar inside it.

Let me know the results please

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I now have an Archive folder


It is empty

It can take some time to populate, how big is the PST file your opening?

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


14,152 K


 


Also have uinder ar,chive


Deleted items 96 ( has some data inside)


20 - 30 Appt Aux Flags ???

ok, 14,152 K is very very small.

This doesnt sound like the right PST file, years of data would be much larger.

Can you search for other PST files in Carbonite please Roger.

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Its going to take me some time to get into Carbonite and get the file.


Can we continue tomorrow??


Do I need a case number??

We can continue tomorrow, that is no problem, you just reply here like you did now.

I have marked this question to never close, so no rush.

But you just need to find the right phone, then open it in Outlook like you did before.

When you get the right phone Roger, you get your data display in it.

But just let me know if you have any problems please.


Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


What do you mean RIGHT PHONE????


Also How do I get back to YOU??

PST File Roger, that was a typo, sorry.

You return to this web page, where you are now, making the messages.

Or check your emails for an email from me with a link to this web page please.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

 


You mean that the three that have no data I delete


I should keep the first one, which is current??


I should rename the other two as archives and keep them??



You are doing great.


I will give you an excellent when the time comes.


 


How about other questions like on Microsoft publisher, etc.

Correct, the three that have no data if you do not want to use the,

Keep the current one.

You can rename the other two, but it is best just to leave them as they are Roger.

I can handle any questions on computers, you can make any you wish to me on this link.
