  • OT- MAC Technical Question

    Any MAC gurus here? I used a MacBookPro for a few years, and it died a while back. I took it to the Geek Squad and had them move everything off the hard drive into a storage device. I have been able to pull documents and pictures off this device, but what I would really like is the "Contacts" file. I had a lot of info stashed in there. My question is, where is that stored in the contents of the drive? The only thing I can find is: applications-contects.app-contents-resources-contacts.icns.

    The last, contacts.icns shows the contacts icon, but I'm not sure if it has the text/contents in it. Before I try to download a program to open that .icns file, I would like to know if the info is there or not.

    I know almost nothing about MACs, but that file extension is for icons https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Icon_Image_format

    You won't find the contacts in there.

      I was afraid of that. The text in that has to be somewhere.

          pinstripe, thank you! I followed your link's instruction, there was no "sources" after opening addressbook, but there are files named AddressBook V22. I will attempt tp open these. Thanks!
