How do I check that my phone's contacts are safely backed up?

How do I locate the contacts I've just sync'ed from my smartphone (Windows Mobile 6.1) on my PC?

For a friend:

I've just installed ActiveSync 4.5 and have apparently successfully sync'ed my Samsung Jack to my PC.

I'm going to need to do a hard reset on the phone to solve some other issues (corrupted ringtones) and want to make sure that the sync'ed contacts are complete and intact. It's important that when I reset the phone, everything is there to import from backups. I'm terrified of losing the 500+ contacts in my Mobile Outlook.

Where are the contact files transferred to? They aren't in the file I've designated to receive all photos, sounds and other files.

If they have outlook installed, they should show up as contacts. So check there first. After that, I'm not sure, as I sync my contacts with hotmail.

Should be in Outlook.

If you want to be sure of not losing your stuff on the phone, look at something like SPB Backup, which will do a complete or partial backup/recovery of your phone's system state and data to a data file. You can import and export the contacts from that as well.
