Where do iCal and Address book store their stuff?

    Hi there

    I formatted my MBP and re-installed OS X on it in order to get rid of the second partition created by boot camp.

    I thought it might be a good idea to start fresh with OS X anyway as I'd really mucked up some system files. I took a disk image of the hard drive with SuperDuper! and stored it on an external HDD, and then mounted that to take certain data off (like all my Apps & stuff).

    So far I have managed to get all my data across (iPhoto library, Mail settings, iTunes library, Apps yadda yadda...), but I can't find out where iCal stores it's Calendar, and where Address Book stores all my contacts.

    I still have the disk image. Can someone please point me in the direction of Address Book & iCal's data?

    Many thanks

    Alex

    ~/library/application support/addressbook
    ~/library/application support/ical

    I think it is sufficient to copy over these two folders in their entirety. You might also need com.apple.addressbook.plist and com.apple.ical.plist though.
