CodeTwo Move and Delete Watchdog: Prevent accidental data loss in Outlook

RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

One of the most annoying things in Microsoft Outlook is the scrollbar. How often did you accidentally delete a large file or change its original location? For example, you want to scroll down in the navigation pane, but you miss the scroll bar and, without knowing it, you enter one Outlook folder and move it to the other folder.

A similar case can occur when deleting a file from a folder. Here you can accidentally delete an entire folder. You think you are deleting an unnecessary file (Outlook recognizes it as a folder) and click the’Delete’ button. When asked to confirm the action, you do not need to read it and simply click ‘Yes’. Shortly afterwards, you lose valuable information.

If you want to avoid such situations, look no further: try Code Two Move and Delete Watchdog.

Code Two Move and Delete Watchdog is a free Outlook tool and add-in that prevents you from accidentally moving or deleting Outlook folders. The program avoids confusion with searching for folders whose location has been accidentally changed while protecting important Outlook data from loss.
