I recently downgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.0.

My machine was cleaned.  I created a lot of backups using iBackup.

What is the name of the Contacts file, and how do I restore it?

Thanks,

I am using Outlook 2010  not 2003.

There is no Import option in the File menu.

I used File-->Open.  This imported my saved .pst file as a second Contact folder.
