Somehow all the cards in a group got corrupted so that the information in one card's "notes" field is now in all the cards -- to the exclusion of the information (important information). trying to restore from TM the information iin library>application support>address book doesn't work. The information in iCloud is likewise wrong. The  file library>application support>address book does not seem to exist in my SuperDuper BU. I need my old data. HELP!

    Do you have only the SuperDuper backup?

    Bring the Contacts or Address Book window forward, then enter Time Machine and scroll back to a snapshot that includes the contacts you want to restore. Select the contacts and click the Restore button in the lower right corner of the screen.
