I'm assuming the address book files are stored someplace under the user folder. I'm trying to find just the Address Book files so I can copy them over from a backup of my user folder.

Does anyone know where these files are normally located and what the names are?

Also, can I just copy them to proper place, or will I need to do something special to make the system recognize them?

I didn't export or backup the info from Address book, I just have an entire backup of the old user folder and I DON'T want to copy it all over, I just want the address book restored.

Thanks.
