Product Overview

Windows Live Mail is one of the most popular free email clients. As a rule, Windows Live Mail is used on a daily basis and as a result, it accumulates a lot of important information in its databases, including both e-mail messages and the contacts in the address book.

For some time now, we have been offering our clients the most efficient and user-friendly solution for recovering emails from Windows Live Mail databases. Now, we also have a special tool for recovering Windows Live Mail contacts.

Windows Live Mail stores all of its contacts in a single file called Contacts.edb. This file is located in the following Windows folder: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\Default\15.5\DBStore\contacts.edb

Contacts Recovery for Windows Live Mail can extract contacts from the Contacts.edb file even if it has been corrupted. Furthermore, if the Contacts.edb file was deleted or lost for any reason, your contacts can be recovered from a local hard drive where the file was stored, thanks to the low-level content-aware algorithm used by this program.

The recovered contacts from the Windows Live Mail contact list can be saved in two different formats: VCF and CSV. The support of these formats makes it possible to import recovered contacts not only to the Windows Live Mail contact list but also to any other email client, including MS Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird.
