Windows 7: Address Book

Address Book

I accidently deleted contacts in my Outlook Express 6 address book. Downloaded Address Book Recovery software but after scanning, only a few of the entries were located.

I've heard there are ways to restore and would like some assistance if possible.

Thanks,

It may help to know that Outlook Express used the Windows Address Book, a single file with extension of .wab. Outlook Express actually came with Internet Explorer, not Office which has Outlook.
