Im looking for something that can read a PST file and undelete a folder than has been deleted from the PST (it is no longer in the deleted bin). I tried a "free" tool only to find out once its installed its actually a commercial tool and wont copy out the deleted items without purchase. It can definately see them, though.

Is there an OSS or free tool that can do this? I see a couple PST projects on sourceforge, but they are mostly for converting to mbox and other formats. Not sure if they'll see the deleted items. Thanks.

Is there any chance of simply restoring an old version of the PST from a backup? –  Zoredache Mar 9 '10 at 22:07

I have never used it but READPST looks to be a likely contender.

The -D option is to "Include deleted items in the output."
