    I just erased my HD and Im reinstalled all my programs. Im now trying to import my contacts to my address book. Before I erased my HD, I made a back up of my contacts by going to file>>>Export>>>Address Book Archive. and it saved it as a .abbu file. Now that its time to restore my contacts, It wont let me. My whole system was saved with time machine, so how do I restore my contacts threw time machine, without restoring everything else? Thanks

    With Address Book open, startup Time Machine. You'll be able to go "back in time" right in the Address Book app, select the contacts you're interested in, then restore them through Time Machine.
