However, it is possible to find it back, and even to see where it is located in the hierarchy – by going in Advanced find, looking for emails in that folder, opening one of the emails, and looking for its position in the hierarchy.
Start by opening the Advanced Find tool, with shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + F
There, in Look field, select Any type of Outlook item
Go to tab Advanced, and select the option under Field => All Note fields => In Folder
Enter under Value the name or partial name of the folder you are looking for, and click Add to List
If you haven’t clicked on Add to List, when clicking Find Now, Outlook will propose you to add your criteria to the list, click Yes
After clicking on Find Now, you’ll see the list of emails located in folders with similar names to your search
Double click on one of the mails you had stored in the folder you’re looking for to open it
Once in the mail, open a new Advanced Find window with CTRL + SHIFT + F, the new search tool will already be setup to search in the mail’s folder.
And bingo ! You can here see the hierarchy under which the folder is located.
Go back to your Outlook window, navigate in the folders tree to your folder, and you’re done.
