    I did a reinstall of my OS and neglected to copy my WLM contacts list. I have not as of yet deleted the Windows.old folder. Is it possible to find the contact list within that folder?

    Thank you in advance for your time and any assistance provided.

    Thank you for the prompt response, NICK. I appreciate it. I've reinstalled operating systems many times in the past and once I reinstalled WLM all my contacts were listed; however, they failed to reappear after the latest OS reinstall. I don't understand it.

    Thank you for your reply, tcntad.

    The information must have been removed from the servers because my previous contact list did not reappear once WLM was reinstalled.

    Well, I found the Contacts list. I wondered why the contacts were stored on servers but I could not access the contacts from those servers through WLM so I tried an end run. I went to hotmail.com and entered one of my email addresses, clicked on "Contacts" and there they were. I don't know why the list didn't download to WLM when all the folders and their content downloaded to WLM.

    Thank you again for your assistance. I do appreciate it.
