Hello, I'm working on a couple computers that have microsoft outlook experss. i've had to uninstall and reinstall a newer version of the software. i had created .pst files to backup the original emails. however i believe i did not save the 'contact' information. is there any way i can retrieve the contact information on a computer that has been reformatted?

Did you export messages to Outlook?
How did you create the pst files?

Hi TyStone72


Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!


Look in the e-mail program, Help > About
This will tell you what program you are using.

Outlook Express uses .dbx files to store its messages.

Microsoft Outlook uses .pst files to store messages, Contacts, task, notes, etc.
What version of Outlook?

If you have formatted the drive, you will probably need to use Recovery Software.
Any files you recover may or may not be viable.
