Lost Contacts

Performed some minor database maintenance (deleted about 10 old contacts) earlier today using a lookup which included about 750 contacts.  After deleting several contacts, the database locked up.  Upon restart all contacts in lookup starting with letters below S are missing.  Is there a way to restore missing contacts without restoring from a backedup version?

Using ACT! Pro 2011 Version 13.1.111.0, Hot Fix 6

Total database had about 2300 contacts before crash - now has 1750

Re: Lost Contacts

If you have a backup, restore it to a different name and just merge in the missing ones ... so any new data in the others is retained

Re: Lost Contacts

Thanks,

I have  backup file - not as recent as it should be (that is another issue).  Was hoping for a way to avoid missing several months of new contacts, histories, and notes.
