Lost contacts after sync with my PC

Hello guys,

Hope you have a nice Easter and that everything is in place for you.

I lost all my contacts on my smartphone Motorola Moto Q Windows Mobile 6 after synchronizing with my laptop (Windows XP, Office 2007), no warning, no nothing, Im in shock!

Anyone have idea how I can recover them? forget about backup I dont have any.

Thank you so much for your support.

You have set the Sync option incorrectly. You have told the Computer to overwrite the Phone's Data not the other way around with the Phone Overwriting the Computers Data.

All you can try here is to directly connect the phone to the computer and run one of the available Data Recovery Applications but you need to understand that this is a Time Consuming Process and you may not be able to go without the phone long enough to recover what is recoverable.

When you run any Data Recovery Program you should set this to save the recovered Files to something other than the Device which lost the Data as you will be overwriting Data that may be recoverable if you save the output of the Recovery Application tot he phone.

Here is a short list of the better ones but it is by no means a complete list of all the available software.

While the last 2 are from the same company they are very different products. Win Hex should only be considered for use by someone who knows Hex Inside Out while Davory is a great cheap General Purpose Application.

Personally I prefer the On Track Option but it's anything but cheap. However because I use this type of software a lot it's paid for itself many times over by now, for a cheaper option Spin Rite from Gibson Research or Stella have both very good reputations by other TR members.
