Open WINDOWSLIVECONTACT File – What is and How to View – Format and Programs


Type: Windows Live Messenger Contact List

 

The files are generally found in the hidden folder ‘C:\Documents and Settings\ {username}\Contacts and are likely to be a sequence of files which will be having scrambled names for all the contacts within the windows live messenger’s contact list.
In case these files are lost it will be very difficult to be able to recover these files.
So it is recommended that you should backup these files periodically from time to time. You can do it by exporting your contact list from the windows live messenger to a .CTT file. Then save it in the desired location. So that in case there is a mishap and you happen to lose all your contacts in your contact list you can then later import that .CTT files from the location to which you saved it. Then, all the contacts in your contact list will be restored.
