    If I right-click a message and use the option to copy to folder, beneath my
    storage folder header is a folder named "Recovered items", that contains
    about twenty sub-folders. However, the folder is not otherwise visible. How
    do I make it visible so I can check and clear the content?

    In the left pane, there is a little arrow, just to the left of Storag
    Folders - click it and it will open to reveal other folders - any o
    those that have arrows beside you can open in the same way. They wil
    stay revealed until you clik the little black thing where the arrow use
    to be , then they will collapse again

    Hope that help

    The Storage folder list is already expanded. "Recovered items" does not
    exist in the list.

    it does not show subfolders listed in he right-click display.

    Ahhh! I have it.

    Recovered items was in the trash. Right-clicking to save or move an item
    showed it in its original location. As best I can guess, emptying the trash
    caused restore. All of its sub-folders remained but content, if any, was

    It' safer to deleted the contents of the Recovered Items folder when no longer necessary as opposed to deleting the 'Recovered
    Items' folder itself.

    Deletion of either will reside in the Deleted Items Folder(under Storage Folders).
    One can empty the Deleted Items folder.
