    Calendar Archive (2002 (10.4712.4219) SP2)

    Help!!!! I seem to be unable to retrieve archived items from my Outlook calendar. All my appointments earlier than six months ago have simply disappeared. When I open the archive folder, it looks exactly the same as the current folder. When I go to the place where it says my archived items are being stored, there's no folder by that name there.

    I have disabled the auto-archive function, but that's just going to make Outlook balloon beyond imagining. I hate to think all that stuff is lost, though. I need it to remember what I did last year so I can do it again this year.

    Hellllllllllllllllllllp! <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    I don't use Auto Archive, but for future reference, I believe you can turn archiving on and off on a folder-by-folder basis. My Outlook just crashed or I'd try this myself, try right-clicking Calendar in the Folder View "tree" and look through the properties dialog.

    Right click Calendar, click Properties, AutoArchive Tab, make sure "Permanently delete old items" is UNchecked. Also, that dialog shows the location and name of the autoarchive file last used for Calendar, in case it is different from where you were looking and couldn't find the Archive file you expected.

    I have lost old Archive calendar folders because when I manually Archived, the Archive file was overwritten, which I did not expect, I expected incremental addition. So now I Archive manually and create new file every time, which takes more time, but I'm too paranoid to trust AutoArchive.
