How To Recover Deleted Contacts in Windows Live Messenger 2011

If you are a Hotmail, Windows Live Mail or a User and have happened to accidently delete some Contacts in error then this small tutorial will help you in recovering all the deleted Contacts in your Windows Live account.

1. Sign out of your account (if you are still online).

2. Go to and log in your account.

3. Click on Messenger->Contacts (you don’t need to sign in to Messenger).

4. Go to Manage->Restore deleted contacts.

5. Choose the contacts you want to restore and click Restore.  You can also restore all contacts by clicking on Restore all. Please note that you can’t restore contacts deleted more than 30 days ago.

6. After contacts have been restored, click on Add as friend.

7. Choose Invite in the pop up window. After that, contacts will be restored. Your friends will not receive any invitation because your ID is still in their list.

8. Sign in back to WLM. (It may take some minutes for deleted contacts to appear in your list)
