    Lost personal folders, files and their documents inside :(


    [Microsoft Outlook 2010; Win 10 Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.476); Google Chrome Browser; Lenovo Laptop]

    Hello, around 2 or so weeks ago I lost a personal folder I created with its sub-folder and documents inside, in my Microsoft Outlook 2010. Carbonite (my backup site) has restored folders/files within a certain period and put a shortcut in my desktop page, but I haven't been able to import them into Outlook so I can see if the missing folders/files are there, and asking Carbonite for help they said they don't do that.

    During these 2 weeks I've been searching everywhere for them. Then turned to internet search but wasn't able to find suggestions I could follow. Where I understood and tried them...I always found something different from the instructions and got stuck in the middle....So frustrating!

    If someone here has Outlook 2010 and knows how to import into them files from another site please help? Anticipating my deep thanks. Lost personal folders, files and their documents inside :( :)

    :)
