How do I Restore Contacts After Sync?


Sometimes after a synchronizing session between Microsoft Outlook and your cell phone's ActiveSync, you might accidentally delete your contacts due to ActiveSync's troubled interface. Once you do the damage, you might think there is no way to recover your contacts as they will be deleted from both the phone as well as the computer. However, there is one small trick that will get you your contacts back even after deleting them.

  • Open Outlook on your computer.

  • Click "Deleted Items" under "All Outlook Items."

  • Click "Folder List" on the left side menu. This will contain a list of all your deleted contacts as well as other files you deleted previously.

  • Select all your contacts from the list, and leave other items as they are.

  • Drag and drop the selected files to the "Contacts" folder (third option in the list), just above "Tasks." All your deleted items will be recovered, and saved in the "Contacts" folder.
