    About every 2 days Windows Live Messenger is continually recreating
    " 2 new contact files" (30Mb every one)
    for each WLM profile in
    "Windows Live Contacts Folder",
    which in Win 7 is located at:

    C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

    This is a loss for those who are using limited internet.
    It makes (15 days X 60Mb=) 900 Mb lost in a month.

    What is the reason of that?

    What can be done to prevent this?

    it's syncing with the server, delete the file then log on to windows live and delete the files there.

    I am always deleting the old files but keeping the last 2.
    Because If I delete these 2 last ones they are recreated immeaditly again.

    So where is located the log.. can't find it?
    Will deletition of the log prevent the syncing?

    Thanx
