    Hi Everyone,

    I recently performed a factory reset after backing up my GS2. On restart, I was missing all but 14 contacts.

    Looking at Application Manager, I see a file called "Contacts Storage" which is 8MB in size. I hope this contains all the missing information but I'm not sure how to access it's contents. I hope my contacts have not been permanently deleted.

    I'd be very grateful if anyone can advise me through the process.

    Many thanks,

    GS2 user

    I have been searching online and there appear to be a number of data recovery tools to enable deleted data that still resides in the phone's internal database.

    One application is called Dr. Fone - does anyone have any experience with this? I tried to use it last night, but the process of connecting to my GS2 failed.

    Thanks,

    gs2 user
