Restore contacts

Have removed about 100 contacts ot off about 7000. My last database backup only shows 5000 contacts. If I restore the old database to a new location can I import the old information into the new database and then merge the duplicates?

Re: Restore contacts

Or you could restore the 5000 backup
Open the 7000 db
Look for all contacts edited/created since the backup in the 7000db
Merge those into the backup with source overwrites into the 5000db
Then use the combined db

Finally, make sure you have good backup procedures AND check them regularly
