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 ?

it doesn't populate the actual addresses without the contacts on your system,  but do try that,
