    Where is the contacts folder


    Hi

    I have Windows Live Mail on a W8.1x64 updated PC, and want to copy the Contacts folder.

    Can anyone tell me where it is located?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Does this guide over at SevenForums help? - Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Contacts - Windows 7 Help Forums

    This will show you how to do an export from within Windows Live Mail.

    Regards,

    Hi

    what I want to do is copy the folder, not export or import.

    Thanks

    Can't vouch for this as don't use any mail clients on my computer but see if this helps:

    How to find the contact storage folder

    So, I have two answers for you.
    First, I'll actually answer your question:

    • They are in C:/Users/your-login-name/appdata/local/Microsoft/WindowsLive/contacts.

    That folder contains the files that are used by Windows Live contacts to store your contacts.
