Back up your Contacts database automatically
Authored by: digs0 on Mar 08, '13 09:07:50AM

It's not as automated of course but it's very easy for even novice users to simply select all of their contacts and drag them onto the Desktop or elsewhere as a vCard. That's another method I use to make sure I don't lose contact info.

In versions prior to Lion vcard doesn't include the data in "note". Exporting Address Book Archive does.
By the way, sharing a contact from iPhone (iOS 6) (a vcf file) also omits the info in "note"
