Lost some contacts during sync with Mac Adress Book

So i recently synced my contacts using Desktop Manager for Mac. I checked the "two way sync"

Somehow all my blackberry contacts were replaced with all the contacts on my Mac. 

I had some contacts on my blackberry which were not on my Mac and now they dont appear on my blackberry anymore.

However these contacts exist in my call log.

How do i get them back?

Re: Lost some contacts during sync with Mac Adress Book

That's odd. Have you managed to create a backup of your device prior to syncing? You should be able to get your contacts from the backup. Simply do a restore using Blackberry Desktop Manager. You can also use a 3rd party app to extract the contacts off the backup and just transfer them back to your device afterwards. Blackberry Backup Extractor works on a Mac and reads both IPD and BBB backups.
