Orphaned Contacts


I activated (BES) blackberry for one of my user and restored a backup with old items to the new blackberry, after this a bunch of orphaned contacts  appeared in user’s Outlook


Can I know what is orphaned contact’s and why is it creating under user’s outlook contacts? Will it overwrite blackberry device contacts with outlook contacts?


Appreciate any help to resolve this issue


Thanks and Regards
