I cleverly managed to lose all of my addresses and telephone numbers. I have Time Capsule connected so hopefully I can retrieve the data. Can anyone advise where to look for the old data and which files to restore?
Many thanks

    /Users/username/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/AddressBook-v22.abcddb should be the one. However, just restore the entire AddressBook folder.
