Windows 7: Restored Windows Live Mail contacts missing the "names"...

Restored Windows Live Mail contacts missing the "names"...

Hello everyone: I had a HDD crash last week and I have been in the process of recovering and restoring. I did not lose anything as my backup seemed to work nicely but I have been piecing things back together. After reinstalling Windows Live Mail, I grabbed the contacts file off my backup and it restored. Hooray. Except the entries only show the contact's email address... all of the "names" are gone. I would have assumed that they would all be together in the same file. Does anyone know if there is another contacts file with the names and if I have to restore that as well? What's the best approach? Windows 7, Windows Live Mail 2012. Thanks.
