What version of WLM are you running?

On my system - WLM 2012 the contacts db is in DBStore under a system protected folder Default
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\Default\DBStore

close WLM
move everything in the DBStore folder to a new folder outside the WLM tree (ex: Downloads\WLM_Contacts\DBStore)
copy your "backup" clients.edb to %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\Default\DBStore
It would be better if you had the entire folder as A Guy noted, but see if WLM will rebuild the structure having only the clients.edb
Launch WLM

no joy?
close WLM
resart your system
launch WLM

Thanks for trying though.
I'm closing this topic because it's going nowhere. Other than A Guy everyone hasn't read my original post and learned that I don't have a .csv or any way to make one.
Microsoft sucks for making this problem; but I can't say I want to use something else; I'll just make a backup .csv every month or so.
Good bye.
Thanks DD that really is spitting the dummy I offered you a solution and you didn't even acknowledge that as far as I am concerned you really haven't tried or made many fiends here.

Yes I know but it does get a bit tedious sometimes I wonder why I even bother as some of the stuff some want to do is just stark raving mad, or plain OCD.
