lost contacts from Entourage 2008 and in Exchange 2003
Posted on 2012-08-22
The boss has a MAc with Entourage 2008, we have a MS domain with exchange 2003.
He also has a mac book pro, which we just happened to be working on when this occurred, the laptop had the previous week lost the ability to synch. with Exchange.
So while i was trying to figure out why this mac book pro could not talk with the exchange server, all the contacts for the Boss's account were erased or deleted somehow.
What i want to know is the best way to get the contacts back. I have daily backups of the infomation store, should i just restore the contacts that way and then pull them back onto the Bosses desktop and iphone via synch'ing them? And question 2 how the heck could this happpen? Is it just coincidence i was working on the Mac book pro when all the contacts got erased? the contacts are still on the mac book pro, as it still cannot connect to the exchange server.
