Windows 7: Lost the NOTE information in 50 Outlook Contacts

Lost the NOTE information in 50 Outlook Contacts


All of a sudden I noticed that my passport & tax numbers had disappeared from my Outlook 2007 entry under my 'own contact name'. Around 50 others had lost the contact note information as well.
So > NOT the separate NOTE item that is part of outlook, just the remarks INSIDE an outlook contact entry.

I hoped older outlook.pst files still had the correct note versions, but whatever I searched in backups: their email and calendar content was different for different save dates, but the CONTACTS were all the same. With the same missing notes.

How come? Why are 'old contact data' not stored somewhere?
And: where could I have a look to recover the lost stuff???

Thanks for helping,
