Backing up Address Book contacts in 10.5

You can create a backup copy of your address book, so you can easily recover your original information if you make inadvertent changes. It is easy to do, but in AddressBook 4.0, nowhere does it mention the work backup – they call it Archive, so just note that it’s the same thing.

It’s a good idea to back up your address book before you make extensive changes, such as importing new addresses or reorganizing groups.
To archive your address book:

Choose File > Export > Address Book Archive.

Choose a name for the file, and select where you want to export the file to.

To further safeguard your address book archive, copy the file to an external hard disk or a CD.
