    Upgraded from office 2003 with office 2010....lost all my contacts

    hello guys,

    i'm on an xp machine. upgraded from office 2003 to office 2010 and lost all my contacts 2000+.

    back up on my external is corrupted............

    i am royally screwed...

    before upgraded to office 2010 i added 7 contacts.

    when i sync'd it only added those 7 contacts to office 2010.

    i went into my phone and i do not have any contacts on there. the 7 contacts that show up in office 2010 do not show up in my phone....

    like i mentioned above the back up on my external is corrupted


    what to do ?

    I've never known a upgrade to Office 2007 to delete the PST files though I have seen them get orphaned. Have tried looking for your original Outlook PST file? The default location is usually something like: c:\documents and settings\<your profile name>\application data\microsoft\outlook\ . You should be able to reimport it back into your current PST file.

    thank you for the reply, my .pst back up was on an external that became corrupted(static).

    luckily i found my old sch-i730 that has 95% of my contacts. problem is that i'm having trouble getting it to boot up(problem i had before). i'm charging it as we speak.

    my laptop took a dump and right now i'm using a netbook with windows 7 starter(have always had xp machines).

    i need to find the samsung usb modem drivers for windows 7 and mobile sync 6.5 isnt working.

    i will install ms office and back up the contacts to it from my old sch-i730(if i can get it to boot up). then reconnect my sch-i760.

    any words of wisdom for me mguzzy?


    again thank you for your response.

    this netbook with windows 7 starter already has windows live mail.

    i just setup my gmail account to it....how easy!

    can i use windows live mail to sync my contacts? i would like to avoid installing outlook 2010 on this machine(really slow).
