Repair a Smart Group-related Address Book problem

If you have any kind of Backup from before the incident (i.e. Time Machine) it would be advisable to overwrite the files with the backup.
Deleting this file would also delete any other Smart-Folders you had, which recreating could be a big hassle. So for everyone out there who doesn't: Backup you fool!

Repair a Smart Group-related Address Book problem

I did the same, but I cannot find AddressBook-v22.abcddb, and deleting all of the address book entries in metadata didn't help either.

Any suggestions?

Meanwhile I found the file and deleted it, everything works fine.

I was fooled and looked on Macintosh HD in the Library folder, which is not the correct place. You must look in YOUR folder, there you'll find the right files.

THANKS A LOT!
