    I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. I have a Powermac G5. I've had it since July 07. I have had no problems, haven't had any changes recently. Today my mail and Address book froze while I was entering contacts in the Address Book. It did a force quit and ALL of my contacts are gone! Not just the one I was trying to put in at that moment, but every contact.

    I tried syncing it w/ Iphone and that just erased everything from my phone.
    I've tried restarting.

    Anything I can do???

    Quit Address Book. Look in ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/ (where ~/ is your home folder) and see if there's a file which you can duplicate and then rename to (after removing/renaming/deleting that file). Start Address Book and see if anything is back.

    I appreciate the response. I tried that. When I changed the name it opened an address book w/ only my contact info but nothing else.
