Hi Bob,

Click on the Start orb & in the search box type C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Microsoft , where you should replace "[...]" with your user name.

In the bracketed section insert your user name. This should get you into Live Mail on your computer & you should be able to find your Contact list & restore it.

This gives more detail on exactly what to do with the above remedy.

Go to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft and then right click on the Windows Live Mail folder and choose 'restore previous versions'. Then choose the most recent date to restore to and click restore. After restoring to a previous date, you can always restore back to a future date. Then open Windows Live Mail.

If this doesn't help you then this YouTube video might. You may have to play it a few times so you can follow the instructions.

Good luck. Get back & let us know if you succeeded or failed to get them back.

Bligh.

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?
