Dear All,
I was having an exchange server 2000(upgraded from 5.5) on Windows 2000 Server. I was planing for a migration to exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 R2.Unfortunately the same server got crashed and I was unable to recover anything out from that server.

Now I made a new server with Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 R2 (64 bit). We made this as a different domain. Everything got configured and recovered old mails from the PST file.

Now we found that our old personal contacts are missing, seems that was storing in the Exchange.

I have a backup of this crashed exchange(windows backup). Is there any way to rocover the personal contacts from this backup?

Expecting you valuable suggestions on praveen@alsagrsaudi.com

Thanks & Regards,
Praveen Nair

Sorry for the contacts lose. The system backup only keeps the system state.

The contacts were in the exchange databases, which are usually backed up separately. If you have a backup of the Exchange databases, this might help.

Yes I have the back of Exchange 2000(that I am taking through the Windows 2000 Server backup. But now I use Exchange 2007 Server. Is it possible to take out these Personal contacts through any tool?

You'll have to build a temporary machine and mount the databases from the backup into a Recovery SG. From there, the exports can be done with ExMerge.
