I recently had to re-install my blackberry operating system therefore losing all my data on the handset, specifically my contacts database.  Yesterday I tried to re-sync my blackberry to my Outlook contacts (which i do regularly as a backup) however i wasnt paying attention and I inadvertantly sync-ed my Blackberry contacts (ie none) to my Outlook contacts, thereby erasing my outlook contacts.  How do i retrieve a version of my outlook contacts back please?  I searched for .pst files on my laptop and found them. However these are backups from yesterday evening so wont have the original contacts on from earlier in the day.

Hello mjbancroft,

You need to find another PST or CSV file that contains your contacts.  Unhide hidden files before doing the search.

If no backup files, then you will have to type the contacts back in manually.

Best wishes,
