    iPhone contacts to populate Outlook Address Book?

    Long story short, I formatted my PC and "thought" I backed up everything. I did.... but somehow (stupidly) missed my Outlook personal folder. Not a massive issue but after reinstalling Office 2007 and iTunes, I set up Outlook from scratch and thought that if I just plugged in and synced my iPhone, all the addresses on the phone would populate into the Outlook address book.

    The reverse happened - As there are no contacts in the Outlook address book, iTunes decided to wipe every single contact off my iPhone instead! I luckily managed to restore the backup iTunes took after, but now I am reluctant to connect my phone up again.

    Is there a option/way to Sync my iPhone so that contacts go into the Outlook address book instead of the other way?

    Hahaha! Forgot to post solution!

    I plugged in my iPhone and instantly cancelled the sync that started. Under the iPhone setting in iTunes is an advanced option to replace contacts on the phone. I unticked it and synced and it put all my contacts in outlook.
