I managed to restore my contacts as per the last 30days but I just can't seem to find where they have been restored to. Please help.


You are not able to access those data directly on your device (unless it's rooted). There's a system app taking care for them, storing them in a database below /data (usually /data/com.android.providers.contacts). Apps like your contacts app or the telephony app interact with this via a corresponding service. To be permitted, apps need to declare the READ_CONTACTS resp. WRITE_CONTACTS permission in their Manifest file.
