I have an associate that archived the complete Personal folders and then decided to restore the original Personal folders.

Everything has been restored except there are no contacts in the Contacts folder list. I have tried repairing the Personal folder and following lots of internet advice with no luck.

There are backup PST files of everything.

Thanks!

Try opening the PST files (but not restoring them) to see if the Contacts folder is in any of the PST files.
