Hello swisscommerce,

Are you using an Exchange?  If so, you can recover the contacts from the server.

If no Exchange, you need to use a backup PST file to recover your contacts.

Hope this helps!

No, the deleted contacts are not stored in Deleted folder.  They are just deleted.

When a contact is deleted it IS placed in the deleted items container.  However if you have purged this, and you do not have Exchange and the option to Recover Deleted Items, then they are lost.

What if I can see it in the item deleted container and did not purge it and do not have exchange?

If you can see them in the deleted items container, then select all the of records that you wish to recover by holding either Ctrl + Click or Shift + Click.  Then you can do 2 things.  You can right click and move the items, or you can drag them over to the contacts icon.  Either way will move these back from the deleted items container to the proper contacts container.
