    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

    A Guy the esedbviewer did not work. It just froze when I tried to run it.
    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.

    It is not worth the trouble it when one will not listen to everyone's suggestions

    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.
