Hello,
The title would make it sound like a simple problem, but I can't figure it out for the life of me. Here is the situation. Last week a thunder storm blew through and sent a electrical spike through my protection and rendered my motherboard useless. My computer guy salvaged my data for all users from the drive. Once the motherboard was replaced, he had to repair the OS,(Vista). He then plopped the data into a folder on the drive. Now I just need to reload my programs and all that stuff. My question is this: I see the folder with all of my contacts in it. How do I get those contacts back in Outlook 2007? I tried the import wizard, but it seems that there is no option for importing that format. I looked at the properties of one of the contacts and it is listed as a .contact format. What is that? Any help would be appricated.

Did you save the original Outlook.pst file? If so, just replace the new one with the original.

I believe I did. What folder is that in? Will that work in Outlook 2010 as well? Can I replace that file in 2010?

Do a search on the computer for the file.

Looks like that file does not exist. I do have a folder called "Contacts" and all my e-mail contact appear to be in it. How do I get those into Outlook? Any idea?
