Default Raw Backupfiles

I was a idiot and did a backup on my s3 in raw file format before flashing a rom that ruined my data. I thought since i was rooted i could do it that way and reflash my original rom get my phone back to exactly where it was by coping the files back over. I have tried doing that but all i get back is my pictures and music, no contacts and some files connected to some apps. I could care less about anything else i just want to figure out where the contacts directory is located and how to i copy them back to my phone in raw file format. I thought i had them backed up on my pc because i transferred all my phone files via usb.Was Running [ROM] [STOCK] T999UVDMD5 | 4.1.2 | Deodexed on my gs3.

How exactly did you create the backup? As in what steps/commands?

Most app data is stored in /data/data/

Hard to say for sure. Some user apps do store info on the sdcard, but most system apps do not...

If you formatted when you flashed your new ROM its probably gone for good.. Especially if it was a 4.3 ROM
