NEED to find my contacts file. I put a new hard drive into my macbook. My iPhone is currently in being repaired too and will be returned to me wiped clean. I did a full restore of my macbook last week. I currently have the external hard drive hooked up but don't know what file they're in. Did a search for this and some one said its the 'mobile sync' file, I can't find it. Anyone any idea? ---------- UPDATE: Just found a file called 'metadata' from my backup which I think could possibly contain all my contacts. they are in '.abcdp' format and they won't import into address book. arghhghh why not?
