Where are your contacts normally stored?

How do you access them?

msn homepage into and 'people'
I can now get a list of deleted contacts and by clicking restore, I have to click on each one - all 400 - but will not let me restore all. some of it comes up with 'no name' and no details
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

There are many reasons why the contacts may have disappeared like this.

Luckily you should be able to restore most of them.

There is no way to restore all - each contact must be recovered individually.

It would be a good idea to export them and keep a backup copy somewhere in case they ever disappear again.
