Windows 7: lost contact list

lost contact list

Installed system 7 over windows XP. Before starting I saved mostly everything (MS Outlook) but not my contact list. Is the contact list still on my hard drive since I did not format it? Could it be embedded in some saved file by the installation program?

Depending on what kind of mail account it was, you might be able to find the old .pst file Outlook created to store it all.

That doesn't tell me what type of account it is, though. Was it IMAP, POP3, or Exchange (unlikely, but just guessing).

If he doesn't have a Windows.old folder, then I would say it's gone.
