I plugged the wd in it shows a couple of folders with a bunch of numbers, it doesn't show what each folder is. any help would be appreciated.

Did your address book and favorites come from another Mac when you put them on the external? Or are they saved in Windows formats...?

Would you be able to take a screenshot of the folder and show us how you backed it up?

It's hard when we don't know exactly how you backed them up to begin with...

Don't forget the +reputation button on the left!
