heres the deal guys, i synced my phone and lost all my contacts and when i right click on my phone name then click on restore it only gives me the option of restoring it 2minutes ago and i tried that and that backup still has my contacts wiped out.

what i would like to know is, is there a way to restore to a backup from when i first plugged it in today? im currently using windows vista.

thanks guy any help will be appreciated
if i am not mistaken the backup wipes the older ones. but i could be wrong, locate the backup folders..

in vista its here Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

you can then delete the newer backup if you see the older one is there and it will use an older one, but i dont think thats the case
tried to figure that out for about 2 hours then i realised that backups were replaced.
SO .. i just had to get everyones numbers again. thanks for the response though.
