Just a quick Google did the trick
Is this what your after?
I am not 100% what is inside the windows old folder if it's just pure windows files or user data. Check the %appdata% on your new windows install and the old, it may of transferred to your new user
Thank you for your prompt reply, Prof Kerfuffle. I've looked everywhere, in both the current and Windows.old folder, and found nothing. I received a reply from someone on the My Digital Life forum, informing me that the contacts are stored on Microsoft's servers and not locally; however, if that's the case the information has been deleted from the servers.
The thing I don't understand is that in the past whenever I've reinstalled the OS and then reinstalled WLM, the contact list always reappeared, which is not the case this time around.
