    Do you mean the entries in your addressbook? Two options to consider:

    1) Look at reply #7 in this thread and try it.

    2) If you can mount your SuperDuper backup image, then copy the files located in

    ~/library/application support/addressbook

    to the same position on your hard drive while Address Book is NOT running. Here "~" is your home directory. So this is the library in your home directory and not the one at the root of the hard drive.

    I tried but the only directory I see in Addressbook plug ins.... I searched in spotlight and see a folder names addressbook, but I do not know where is located .... is it the same?

    The Address Book Plug-Ins directory is in ~/Library
    The directory you want should be in ~/Library/Application Support/
