    I recently synced up my Gmail contacts with my friend's Mac Address Book to show him how easy it was to do, but now I want to remove all my contacts from his Address Book and I can't figure out how to do it except deleteing each one by hand. IS there a faster way to do this?

    It won't let me sort by date, and it doesn't appear that the program actually stores the vCards so I can't go in there and delete those files manually. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Nope, not unless he has a backup of ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook. It could be in Time Machine, I suppose. I don't know if it backs up library directories. Yeah, turns out it does. That may be your best bet.
