Contacts Lost in a PST file transfer

I finished a new computer build a bit back and was in the process of transferring all of my data files. I did a fresh install of Outlook 2013, then allowed the program to pair (if that is the right word) with the two email addresses that we generally use for our "home" email addresses without any problems, except that all of our old mail was off line in our old .pst file. I even liked the display for 2013 better in that each of our email addresses appeared to have its own folder making sifting and sorting email even easier.

Eventually I got around to importing the old .pst file. The procedure was nice and easy right up until the time that I went looking for all of our contacts and they were...gone.

I assume that they are still there, somewhere, but does anyone have a good idea as to how to recover all of the contacts that sure as heck should be there that are currently missing? I am all ears!!!!

In the Address book, see if you have other contacts list in the drop-down list. We just migrated from POP to an Exchange server at work and a few people couldn't find their contacts.



If your contacts are found in there, you can change the "default" contact list somewhere in Outlook's contact settings so it always open that one.

if you still have the old hard disk you can grab the name cache. that might help out. just snag the nk2 file and put it in the directory relevant to the version of outlook you are running. you can at least recover some that way.
