I need to recover a group of contact's that the end user may have deleted. I looked in the deleted items folder on the local outlook and tried to "recover deleted items" through OWA. There are no other users with the group of contact's so i'm unable to share. Are there any other option for retrieving deleted contacts (Group) ?

You should realistically have the emails from these contacts? and could simply retrieve them again from the properties of these emails

Windows version is Microsoft Windows 7 Professional  x64. Office version is Microsoft Office Professional 2010. I took a look at the provided link below but don't think this will help. There are no other user's who had the group contacts, so I would be unable to export from another account. We are not using iCloud. Would I be able to retrieve the whole group from an email that was sent to an individual in that group or would I only be able to retrieve the contact's specified in the email ?

Going on the experience I had fixing my partners computer, that had a large CC  list
it doesn't populate the actual addresses without the contacts on your system,  but do try that,
I was able to use it to get the names and the addresses then manually re-add them from individual email
With a Microsoft account Outlook.com
Your Outlook.com contacts are shared across OneDrive, Skype, and other Microsoft products and services.
 If you've accidently deleted or lost contacts in your Outlook.com contact list, you can restore them. Here's how:
To restore deleted contacts
Go to the Sign in page and enter your email address and password. If you’re already signed in, you'll go directly to the People page.
In the menu bar, click Manage, then click Restore deleted contacts.
Click Restore next to each contact that you want to restore, or click Restore all if you want all your deleted contacts to be restored.
