    Hey gang, been using SuperDuper to clone off my HD to an external. I bought a new machine and em trying to get my contacts and calenders back and having major issues. I don't know what files to move over.

    I tried running Address Book on the backup drive, but it won't run, so I can't export my contacts.

    Any ideas?


    This is all pretty critical as my iphone wiped my contact list on the 4.1 update......
