Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Verify that you are using the correct PST file. I would search your computer for *.pst. Sort them by size. If you find a newer or larger pst you can open it by using File –> Open and pointing it to the other PST file. Repeat until you find your file containing your contacts and folders. If you do not find it you can restore it from your most recent backup. If this is the case just close the Outlook completel. Browse to the current pst files location, copy the backup PST over the current one and restart Outlook/
