Default How to fix my stupidity

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased my 8330. I have installed the desktop software and sucessfully sync'd up with my outlook. I spent hours cleaning up my address book and then tried to sync it. I made a mistake when setting up this sync and lost data. Is there any way to restore the lost data with the logfile or something like that? Thanks!

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

Did you backup the device after the successful sync?
If so, there is no problem.

No. I have no backups. Like I said stupidity. I just uploaded a CSV file into outlook. Then i proceeded to go into my contacts and clean it up. I wanted to sync it so that no data would go back from the blackberry. Instead i set it up wrong and it deleted everything that was in outlook and put the info from the blackberry in outlook.

You may have lost the clean-up work but you still have the .CSV file right? Not everything is lost...

True. I didnt loose everything. The most painful loss is the loss of some of my outlook contact info.
