Sry ... in english : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/mail-import-backup-restore

Depends of your configuration. If you your account is configured in pop, you lose all your data after format.

if your account is configured with imap, you kepp all your message.

For contacts, i think you need to backup and restore after format.

Try looking in:

C:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail . That is where the Windows Live Mail main message store is located.

You can export your contacts if you wish as well.
