Synchronised Outlook and lost all contacts!

  paranomia 12:46 06 Jul 2006

I blame the heat... I have just synchronised Outlook with my mobile which has no contacts, and rather than copying all the contacts from my laptop to the mobile, it has deleted all my contacts from my laptop... Anyone any idea how to get it back?! I have tried a system restore (in panic mode!) but I don't appear to be able to restore at the moment - a problem for another time.

Any help is really appreciated!!

You can check to see if your contacts are in:
C:/documents and settings/ApplicationData/Microsoft/Outlook/

Thanks recap, the file was there but it was devoid of all contacts. Luckily I have recently replaced my laptop and the old one still had my contacts. 30 seconds with ActivSync and all is back, well... almost all! I have now added the contacts list to my regular backup. Cheers!
