    Hi, I just reformatted my Macbook
    and installed everything from scracth again
    i already manually back up all the data on my previous setup, i copy all the home folder to my external disk

    now i'm almost finish installing everything back, but i have one problem, how to restore the ADium contact list ??
    i hate it if i have to put it one by one,
    is there any way to do it automatically ?
    thank you very much.

    Are you talking about your Address Book correlation? Otherwise the actual contact names aren't stored on your .

    None of your contacts are stored on your Mac.

    You're using a chat client. Once you authenticate to the service then you are given access to your contacts server side. You have access to these contacts regardless of the machine. You might run into some issues with simultaneous log ins though.
