I tried to follow the advice given by Pascal in 2008: go to homefolder>library>applicationsupport>ab but it didn't work because there is no ab. Any other suggestions? Can't restore it from my time machine.

    Hello, What version of OSX is it you're on?

     

    In Finder's Go menu, choose Go to Folder, paste this in...

     

    ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/

     

    Do you see these files?

     

    AddressBook.data.previous

    ABPerson.skIndex

    AddressBook.data

    AddressBook-v22.abcddb

    ABPerson.skIndexInverted

    MailRecents-v4.abcdmr

    AddressBook.data.beforesave

    .database.lockN

    .import.lockN

    .skIndex.ABPerson.lockN

    LastImport.plist

     

    And these 2 folders...

    Images

    Metadata

    I'm on OSX 10.9.4

     

    I have these files:

    AddressBook-v22.abcddb

    MailRecents-v4.abcdmr


    and folders:

    Images

    Metadata

     

    I've tried opening them . . . I'd appreciate more help. Thanks.

    I think we're lost without at least one of these...

     

    AddressBook.data.previous

     

    AddressBook.data

    Thanks. I managed to restore all the contacts through my time machine, but not the individual groups.
