Are you syncing using WMDC and Outlook? Or are you talking about C:\Users\username\Contacts?

I want to be able to save my phone contacts so if I have to hard reset the contacts will rewrite

I could do this on the old active sync but I can't figure out how to do it on vista

also, does bitpim work on mobile 6?

Aren't those contacts already in Outlook? If you are going to do a hard reset (Clear Storage) then all you need to do is delete the current partnership and recreate it. WMDC will resync the contacts, calendar, etc.

I guess that's the problem, I just have the native email client on vista and it won't sync with that

Yes, that would be the problem. WMDC only works with Outlook. Didn't they include a license for Outlook with your Mogul? My Tilt came with an older version of Outlook.

I guess it should be on the disc but it didn't install it, I know my 6700 synced fine...will check disc

Wish I saw this thread yesterday. My wife has a Mogul, I couldn't figure out how to back up the contacts on her Vista machine. I did the software update anyway thinking the contacts and calendar would stay, Boy was I wrong!! A couple hundred contacts are now gone. She wants to beat me now. I installed office 03 on there a while ago, and never thought to back it up to outlook. I kept trying to use the active sync.

Ooopppss!!!!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
