Hi,

The subject line says it all... My sad story is that I just got all

my contacts into BCM and it wasn't before long that my Windows

installation died. I hadn't backed up my BCM database, and now I'm

faced with trying to figure out how to get all those contacts back

without re-typing everything.

The good news is that I can read data from my old hard drive when I

hook it up to an external case. Is there some way to pull the BCM

contacts off the old hard drive and into my new installation?

My deepest gratitude to anyone who can help. And yes, from now on, I

will back up regularly, new hard drive or not.

Best wishes...

BTW, I'm using Outlook 2007. Sorry for not clarifying earlier.
