How to restore Windows Live Mail 2012 Contacts

My client had a hard drive fail.  The computer vendor sent a new hard drive and we did a fresh install of Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail.  We sent the drive off for data recovery.  All the files were recovered and we are now trying to get the contacts out of the recovered  contacts.edb file and imported to Windows Live Mail 2012.

There is a hidden backup folder with files in it, and it would seem there would be a method to restore the data from a backup.  

Any direction on how to get the data would be extremely helpful.  

Thank you!
