If you "sign-in" with WLM, your contacts and their grouping into "categories" are continuously updated and saved at "contacts.live.com" so there is never a need to back them up.
If it's too late to do that or you want to avoid "signing-in" you could try unhiding "system" files and drag and drop the contacts store in Windows Explorer to a new install. (You will probably have to confirm multiple times that you really want to do that but when the dust settles you may find your old "not-signed-in" contact list will appear in the new install. I tried that with a few contacts a while ago in WLM 2009 and it seemed to work. However, signing in is much easier and gives you the option to use Photo Email when you want to.)
