    Desktop Manager syncs your contacts with the personal information manager on your PC. It is designed to be used with Outlook, but it can be made to work with other interfaces. I haven't used anything but Outlook, so I can't help you with the others.

    Desktop Manager is not a replacement for Outlook. Desktop Manager does not store your contacts, it just syncs them to something else.

    If you sync'd to something other than Outlook, your contacts are wherever that app stores them. I can't help you with that. If you did not sync them with anything, then your contacts are not on your PC. You can still make a backup of your contacts for safety, but that backup is not user editable without buying additional software. The backup file isn't intended to be used for editing or viewing contacts.

    I have the same problem - My BB8330 has died. I backup regularly on DM. I have outlook on my pc but I didn't set it up to sync.

    Questions -

    With out a live BB, Can I still sync the contacts from DM to outlook?

    If not, What sotware can be used to get to the backup files in DM?

    Thanks for your help!

    BerryGrab will allow you to view your backup files and edit them to .csv files which can be imported into Outlook.
