How to recover “edited” contact in Exchange mailbox (Therefore to undo edits to a contact that had been saved)?

We have a user on exchange mail who by mistake edited some important notes in a contact and saved them. However they want a section of the contact notes that was accidentally deleted.

Is there a way to recover these?


If they had say, just deleted the contact, this would be easier as you would just recover from the deleted items, but because they actually edited a contact, how can one get back the previous version.

Thanks in advance.

Restore from backup.

Restore a version of the mailbox before the change, and restore the contacts section to her mailbox.

I was hoping there was an easier way then having to do a full backup restore. Is there any other options?

Unfortunately you'll need to restore from backups to restore the notes changed for the contact - no other way around it I'm afraid.

Disappointing news, but as two people confirmed it, have to accept this.
Thanks for input.
