OS X :: Address Book Contacts Gone After Installing Snow Leopard

Oct 12, 2009

A couple of days ago, I updated from Tiger to Snow Leopard. It went well, so I thought. Last night, I discovered that my address book had lost all of its contacts - the only one there was me. Is there a place that I can look for this file, in case this is just caused by a disconnect between the program and the file? What is the file called? I do have some folders in ~/library/application support/address book:

(ABPerson.skIndex
ABPerson.skIndexInverted
AddressBook-v22.abcddb
AddressBook.data
AddressBook.data.beforesave
AddressBook.data.previous
Configuration.plist
Images
MailRecents-v4.abcdmr
Metadata)

But none of them can be opened by the Address book app.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Lost Address Book Contacts After OS Upgrade

Apr 22, 2012

I just upgraded to OS X 10.6 and in the process I lost almost all of my contacts in Address Book. I did a full backup before I did the upgrade, so I expect I still have the file even if it isn't still on the hard disk.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Address Book Is Suddenly Empty - No Contacts Displayed

Feb 14, 2012

First:I'm using a late 2008 MacBookPro 17" with 4GB RAM and a 320GB HD.MacOSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Address Book 5.0.3 (883)Mail Version 4.5 (1084) 

Yesterday evening I found that Address Book was empty - no contacts displayed and Mail did not recognize the group name when I entered it in the To field. 

Actions I've tried but did not resolve the issue:Restoring Address Book from a Time Machine backup that was previous to when the problem occurred.Deleting the Address Book app~/Library Address Book Plug-Ins~/Library/Application Support/Addressbook and~/Library/Application Support/Yahoo! Sync

And then restoring these same items from a Time Machine backup that was previous to when the problem occurred.Deleting the Address Book App and then reinstalling from my Snow Leopard Install DVD. 

When I restored AB from Time Machine all my entries showed in Time Machine (even the backups made *after* the problem began) all vCards are there and seemingly are restored.  But, when I make any effort to use a card or change to a different card, AB quits and it's back to an apparently empty address book.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Syncing Contacts From Mail Program To Address Book

Apr 23, 2012

How to make the contacts I have through the Mail program sync up or copy over to my Address Book? Speaking of which, does anyone know how to delete contacts from my Mail? When I go to send an email it can populate the send field with previously-written to contacts, but I can't seem to delete some I don't need/use. That's when I found out that my Address Book doesn't reflect the same things which lead me to asking.

OS X :: Retrieving Deleted Address Book Contacts In Leopard?

Jan 6, 2010

I synced my Nokia 6300 with Address Book and all about 450 contacts were transferred successfully. I used the iSync. In the meantime, I added some 50 more contacts to my cell phone Contacts and wanted to sync them with address book as well. So, I deleted all the existing 450 contacts from the Address Book on my Mac, hoping the next time I sync cellphone with computer, only the new 50 contacts will be transferred to Address Book. Here is what I ended up with: Address Book with only 50 new contacts and Cell Phone with only 50 same contacts!

All of the previous 450 contacts just disappeared from my cell phone! Just like that! I was wondering if there is any chance I can retrieve my contacts, it does not matter where to...either cell phone or Address Book on my Mac. Btw, I am using Leopard 10.5.8 and I have searched all over the web, everybody is mentioning some AddressBook.data.previous file but I cannot find it anywhere! I even created Automator ShowAllFiles Finder Plug in, the Addressbook.data.pevious just is not there.

OS X :: Won't Work With Snow Leopard Address Book

Sep 1, 2009

Snow Leopard 10.6. Address Book SELECTIVELY allows deletion of a multiple contact entry. The updating of the contact database, as as function of the installation of Snow Leopard, produces/creates/brings to your attention, multiples of some contacts that did not exist prior to the upgrade. Most duplicates or triplicates you cannot delete. Some will allow you to delete one but not the other. You can delete them using MobileMe or on the iPhone but not by using the Address Book.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: ICloud Address Book Sync For It

Feb 25, 2012

Mountain Lion won't run on my Intel-graphics dual core white MacBook. Lion should run, but I've been disappointed with Lion and it is now end-of-life (mercifully short). So I've a perfectly fine and responsive Snow Leopard machine. Only problem -- when MobileMe dies in June Address Book on that device won't sync with our iPhone [1]. 

I know Apple doesn't allow 3rd parties to sync anything to iCloud. So there's no solution that way. One approach is to use a 3rd party app to sync Address Book on this machine with Address Book on another machine that in turn syncs with iCloud. 

The easier approach is to go all Google; sync Address Book to Google, set the iPhone to use a Google Apps account. (Ironic that Apple's obsoleting a solid MacBook should drive us to Google.) [1] For various reasons the iPhone syncs to another machine with our family app/media library. So I can't sync Address Book via iTunes.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: 10.6 Address Book Sync With ICloud?

Mar 1, 2012

I have OS 10.7 (latest version) installed on a MacBook Pro, and iOS5 on my iPhone. I recently migrated to iCloud from MobileMe.  However, my company still uses OS 10.6.8. 

How can I get my Address Book on my work Mac, running OS 10.6.8 to sync with my iCloud account? 

How do I set up the iCloud account in my address book? Where is the Contacts server? 

And please don't tell me to upgrade to 10.7. That's not an option.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Transferring Address-book And ICal From 10.5 To 10.6?

Mar 16, 2012

I finally updated my Mac from Leopard 10.5.8 to 10.6.  I got all the latest updates (10.6.8) and am still transferring my apps but having trouble with Apple's Address Book and iCal. I did an export from both on my 10.5 OS then tried importing them into the respective apps under 10.6  When I try that iCal it says "nothing changed".  Address Book just hangs. I still have my old 10.5 OS installation on another drive in my Mac Pro and can boot into it if necessary.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Contact Photos In Address Book Not Saving

Apr 25, 2012

I have run into a similar problem before, when Address Book stopped accepting changes to contacts altogether. I followed advice I saw on the web and deleted the .plist files for Address Book in the Preferences file in my Library. That worked like a charm. Now, that doesn't work.

I have deleted the files, restarted my computer, verified and fixed permissions using Disk Utility, and let my computer rest overnight by leaving it off. Nothing works and I've tried several combinations of order.I am running Mac OSX 10.6.8 on a first generation Intel MacBook Pro. All software is up to date

OS X :: Which File Has My Address Book Contacts?

Oct 27, 2010

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.

OS X :: Deleting Contacts In Address Book?

May 27, 2009

I've tried out iChat and have added 2 friends and iChat has added 2 more contact entries for each of those buddies. Now I can't delete them, or know how to. I thought I could just right click & delete or just drag to the trash but nothing happens. I'm sure its user error [since I'm new to Mac's] but why can't I delete and/or why would it add another contact for a contact I already have? what's going on here with the contacts and what not. I'd basically like to just add my buddies I already have to the iChat buddies but not sure what I'm doing.

OS X :: Duplicate Contacts In Address Book

Sep 6, 2009

My sync is going wrong somewhere along the line and creating duplicate lists of some contacts to build up. I deleted them all yesterday afternoon and now have about 20 or so of some contacts. Some do not duplicate at all. I found this thread over at apple [URL] but as my mobile me account contains the duplicates as well cant get the workaround (deleting address book file) to work.

OS X :: Text Fonts Garbled In Safari And Address Book Snow Leopard?

Sep 26, 2009

System: clean install of 10.6

[B]Issues:[/B ]Safari has garbled menus/text and so does [URL]
Also the groups on the right in address book are garbled (the text looks out of place/corrupt ). The contacts look fine, it's just a couple group names, not all.

What i've tried: There are no duplicates in my font book. I repaired permissions. I've tried the demo of fontdoctor 7.6 but it says no errors, everything passed.

I'm completely stuck - anyone else have this problem?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Company Entries In Address Book Not Act As Person In Mail

Apr 2, 2012

I have noticed that company entries in the Address Book don't seem to work like "person" entries in Mail. If I have a "person" named (for example) "John Doe", I can email that person just by typing "John Doe" in the To: section, and selecting from a list that populates automatically. However, if the address-book entry is for a company (e.g. Dave's Florist), it doesn't seem to work at all. And since Mail doesn't seem to have "address" functionality that lets you select from the Address Book, it seems like the only option is to go into the address book, copy the e-mail address, to back to mail, and paste.

MacBook :: Getting Contacts From IPhone To Address Book

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to move all of my contacts from my iphone to the address book on my macbook. I have carried out a back up and then tried a sync choosing the "merge info" option along the way. I have retained all the contacts on my phone but cannot get them to appear in my address book on my mac. When I look at my contacts on the iphone - when I check in the groups tab I now have two listing under "from my mac" these are the single contact i made up in order to merge and "all from my mac" which contains this single contact along with the standard apple contact that always appears. It seems the info is going to the phone but not back into my address book.
