May be why you lost all the contacts in business contact manager can help us answer your problem ..

have you tried to reinstall the business contact manager to see if that would help .

cooper7596,

So you reinstalled outlook and afer that were you able to work with BCM..

Try recreating your outlook profile as well going to control panel --> mail --> show profiles and removing the profile and creating it again.
make sure to backup all data before that

Before I do that, I will export my contacts information to my documents, back up BCM contacts, but what about the current e-mail in my inbox, deleted files, and other subfolders? Is this the correct way to back up the information?

Look for outlook.pst file searching in hidden folders
Mostly it would be found in
C:\Documents and Settings\{your profile name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
