I have installed an exchange account into my Outlook 2010 profile.

This answer was rated:

I have installed an exchange account into my Outlook 2010 profile. Now when I run iTunes and Sync my iPhone, all the contacts and calendars are gone in the iPhone.

It appears that iTunes is now syncing with the exchange calendars by default instead of the local profile in outlook.

Any idea how I force Outlook to sync my Contacts and Calendars as before?
Hi, and thank you for asking your question!

In order to resolve this issue, please do this in Outlook:

Go to File > Account Settings, then click the 'Data Files' tab.

Now, select the .PST data file listed (NOT Exchange/.OST), then click 'Set as default'.

Finally, close Outlook, then re-sync your iPhone - this should bring back your contacts and calendars.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted!
