Backed up Mac, Reformatted, Now can't find address book


I recently backed up my wife’s entire mac using the WD My Book External Hard Drive for Mac.  I then reformatted her hard drive to clean the computer out.  Now I’m trying to put all relevant files back on the computer, however I can’t seem to find the backed up address book on the external drive.

Any help would be appreciated.


I think it saves the file as a .vcf file. Can you search the drive for that extension?

I may be wrong but last time I saved my data from the address book that’s the backed up file I have.

Sorry I can’t give you a path!

Hope it helps.

…unfortunately I had the same thing happen to me when my friend backed up my system for me more than a year ago…never did get it “fixed.”
