    If you do have a friend collegue with a Mac he could do it for you. You just need to provide the backup folder and it can be done on any Mac with mdhelper.
    Sorry, I am not aware of any similar Windows solution.

    iTunes has a nasty habit of deleting the previous backup every time it does a backup. If you really have an old backup intact, there is a way to restore from it. I forget the procedure, but I'm sure you can Google it. It's a good idea to manually go into your backup directory and manually copy it over to a new name once in a while. That way iTunes won't touch it, and you can use it in an emergency such as yours.
    Here's a article that describes how to do it: How to restore iPhone from an old backup.

    This is what I did and got my contacts back. I had the same problem today and had just updated Facebook app and then suddenly got spit out of mail app. Rebooted and lost all my contacts from old backup file. Did not have iCloud. My solution:

    1. on iPhone settings Mail, Contacts, Calenders - iCloud - contacts set to off
    2. on PC, downloaded and opened up iCloud panel.
    3. signed in with my Apple ID.
    4. chose to only upload Outlook contacts, calenders and tasks
    5. wait till everything is on the cloud
    6. on iPhone settings Mail, Contacts, Calenders - iCloud - contacts now set to on
    7. set calenders to on
    8, look in contacts and they are all there
