    I don't work with outlook much so I have a question about it. I have a friend that their computer got a virus and the hdd had to be fixed. When it came back her new contacts from the last 4 or so months were gone. Is there a way to save her contacts to a flash drive so she can have them to backup if it ever happens again?

    With Outlook not running just copy her .pst file to the flash drive.

    Note: the best course of action is to implement a backup plan for her PC not just the Outlook data file.

    If she just wants to backup her contacts separately, there is an Import and Export item in the File menu for the Contacts folder. Just export all the contacts to a file (use a .pst file if the purpose is to backup for Outlook and not to transfer to another program). This will create a pst file that can be opened as an Outlook data file later, if needed.
