Is there anyway to get my old outlook contacts back after a sync

I just sync my outlook with a new Palm device. Apparently all my outlook contacts got replace/wiped out. Is there anyway to get my old outlook contacts back? I do not have backup of my outlook contacts.

Greetings, marcalfa1 !

Look for an old backup PST file or offline file OST.  Do a search for *.PST and *.OST files.  These files are hidden. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

If the contacts are not in those files, then you will have to recreate them in Outlook. Sorry!

Best wishes!

Are the contacts on the Palm?  If so, reconfigure the sync operation to sync them back to Outlook.  If the contacts are not on the Palm and if you do not have a backup copy, then I'm afraid they're gone.

Cheers!
