How to restore contacts in Windows Live Mail (in education / technology / computers ) by Bill — 2009-01-01

Q:  I had some problems with this program.  I fixed the POP and SMTP server designations, and it works now.  However, I've lost my contacts — the folder is blank.  The funny thing is, when I type some letters in the "to" box, names come up.  Do you have any idea how I can restore my contacts list?

A:  From this web page,, try this free tool,  After installing it, open it and point it to the following directory:

    "%UserProfile%Local SettingsWindows Live Contacts"

You might have multiple randomly-named folders in there. 

That should do it.
