As you know when Outlook data gets permanently deleted and you have an Exchange Server connection, there is still a 50% chance you can recover permanently deleted items.

What happens is – Exchange Server retains permanently deleted Outlook data up to a defined retention period. At the least, your items will retain up to 14 days. These items get stored in the “Recoverable Items Folder” of the Exchange Server. You can access the permanently deleted items through the “Recover Deleted Items From Server” option given in your Outlook account.
