10.4: An AppleScript to automate Address Book backups
Authored by: flyingcactus on Dec 02, '05 11:17:32AM

This sems like a long and involded way of backing up the addressbook information - especially when it specifically involvs UI scripting, which may or may not be turned on. This also can't be done in the background, addressbook will actually open to preform the backup. It would seem alot simpler to just copy the folder ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook to back up the data. It is a much easier script to write and to restore it, all you have to do is replace the folder with your backup copy.
