If your buddy list is missing from AOL, look in your AOL folder or do a Search on your system for buddy.lst or budlist.blt first; this is your actual buddy list, and could be in either format. When you find it you can import it back to AOL.

I'm afraid that if your buddy list is deleted it can not be retrieved. You'll have to re-enter all your friends by hand.

Only option is reinstall the previous version of AOL, after install the previous version that will give one option to export the list of buddy but cannot recover deleted files.

There are some recovery programs available to recover the deleted buddy list. Again you can try reinstalling the program and it will ask you to export the buddy list and than after exporting you can import it back.

You can not restore a buddy list after it has been deleted. Once deleted the files can no longer be accessed. What you have to do is add every body back in manually.

If you buddy list has been deleted this is what you should do. Go to aols homepage tech support and ask them see if they will retrieve it.

If you have Deleted the Buddy list from Aol 9. 0, we cannot recover the same. Aol 9. 0 has No option by which you can recover it

Reinstall the previous version of AOL that you had, once you install the previous version it will give you an option to export the buddy list. Once you export the buddy list go into your aol 9. 0 and you should be able to import the list with no problem.
