    Hi there guys

    So i just upgraded my macbook form tiger to snow leopard. I decided to do a clean install as there was plenty on my computer which i didn't want or need. There are two things that if possible i would love to keep and those are my address book contacts and my calendar dates.

    I have a Carbon Copy Clone of my computer done just before I upgraded the software on my computer.

    So my question is, Is there a way to take a certain file or something and add it to my new address book and calendar rather than imputing all the info again?


    Maybe there is another way to do this as well.

    Either way i appreciate your help

    Try looking in Home Folder>Library>Application Support>Address Book.

    There are files in there but what they are I don't know. Also, if you plug in your external drive with the clone on it, you may be able to use Migration Assistant.

    Why not Export your existing Address Book archive, preferably, for safety to an external drive or memory stick. Upgrade to Snow Leopard and then import the previously saved archive file.
