Watch drive space usage with multiple Address Book backups
Authored by: joshuajabbour on Jan 14, '04 11:51:45PM

I just checked, and my backups exhibit a similar problem (though more sporadic... sequential ones are necessarily bigger, but I had some large ones... up to 35 MB).

I deleted all of them and saved a new backup, and it was only 1.5 MB. So something is definitely up.

p.s. mine were also in ~ / Lib / App Support / Address Book

The problem is that it backs up the entire

~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/

directory, including your backup stored there. The next backup then grabs those and adds another, so it will continue t grow and grow...
