Re: where can i find my contacts in computer after sync ? tx

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

If you truly did, as you say, sync, then they are in you computer-based PIM app -- Outlook or something similar. To get it to sync, you would have had to configure it to sync with your desktop PIM, and that now is where your data is.

On the other hand, if you did not mean to say "sync" and instead meant to say "backup", then your data is safely stored in a proprietary formatted file with either IPD or BBB extension (depending on the version of the Desktop Software you used), and that file is located in the folder that you instructed it to be placed in when you performed the backup (on PC it's usually MyDocuments, but you can change it). Note that this backup file is intended solely as the source of restore to a BB device...natively, there is no other function for the file.

Then again, if what you did was an export to CSV to your computer, then that CSV file would also be wherever you instructed it to be when you conducted the export.

So, please clarify exactly what you really did, and then we might be able to give you some more detailed guidance.

Good luck and let us know!

The contacts will be within whatever PIM (e.g., Outlook) that you configured for synchronization. They will not be in any separate folder as with pictures and videos...rather, when you configured synchronization, you would have chosen a desktop PIM (e.g., Outlook) with which calendar and contacts would be synchronized. So it is there, in that PIM, that you need to be looking for this data.

Hello...thanks for the attempt, but your reply will mis-lead the OP (and anyone else who reads this thread). The OPs need was explicit...for the location of Contact items on their PC, after a SYNCHRONIZATION. The only way that what you now propose could be correct would be if the OP did a BACKUP...but, if you scroll up and re-read the thread, you will see that I explicitly asked the OP that question, and they are firm in that they did a synchronization, not a backup. Hence, your reply is incorrect for the circumstances.

 

Thanks.
