Need to restore Outlook contacts and e-mail, contents never saved

wasn't sure which section this belonged in, so i thought i'd ask here.

a serious disruption caused me to have to reinstall windows 7 again, but the old windows 7 copy(windows.old) was saved. however, the outlook 2007 contacts and e-mails were never saved, so now, how can i retrieve the e-mails and contacts? thanks in advance!

Search the Windows.old folder for any .pst or .ost files. Those can be imported back into Outlook.

would those files still be there if they were never saved?

I'm not sure what all gets captured and put into the Windows.old folder, but if one of those files was present, you'd have what you needed.
