    Hi,

    I did a clean install of Lion on my Macbook Pro. Before installing Lion, I performed a Time Machine backup of Snow Leopard.

    Now, I would like to restore my contacts in Address Book from the backup of Snow Leopard, but I can't.

    Time Machine 'sees' my Snow Leopard backups and they are displayed in purple in the time line, but cannot access them.

    Therefore I tried to copy the Address Book database manually from the backup of /Users/<my_account>/Library/... and so on, only to find that Lion does not have a similar location to store the database.

    I am at a loss, can anyone help?

    Cheers, Peter
