Hey Guys, I helped my wife restore her PST data files when our laptop crashed... I messed up because as you all know outlook creates a new folder if you do not use an old one, well... I let it, and then added the old data files... It works in that she can now get to her old emails... however, it does not work in the fact that she can not access her contacts... my guess is because she has two PSTs with the same contacts... I tried using the MS OUTLOOK help for resolving duplicate contacts hoping that is the issue, but the text never displays... plus I could not figure it out for myself, being that I havent done help desk work in a while... I think I need to ask for a stint at the help desk to brush up on my old skills... Thanks, Mike A!
