After Outlook crashed (would no longer open), I had to re-install MSFT Office (2003). Prior to doing so, I saved the address book (needed all my contacts) and word files etc, most of which went onto a flash drive. The address book was saved onto my computer. It had a wbk (I think) file extension. Anyhow, after I got everything put back together, when I located the address book file, there is nothing in it. None of the hundreds of contacts are there. The file size is 173KB, but there is not one contact in it when I open that file. Is there any way to recover the old Outlook data, or is it gone forever? I read that you can recover deleted files, but did not know if that would pertain in this situation. Since the reinstall, Outlook is working fine.
