If its the WAB (Windows Address Book) youre moving, you have to export to a file (rename, save on desktop), then move the file to your new computer. Then import the file to WAB (Windows Address Book).
If this is for outlook, I have no clue.

It's Microsoft Outlook 2003 to and from. I stalled the NTI Shadow software that came with the Toshiba External Drive. I followed the prompts, copied all the other files and I think I selected Outlook contact or personal address book and copied that too. I think I went to export and sent it to the drive. The icon for outlook appears on the back up drive, but it doesn't have a file extension (?) and it won't import export to either the computer it came off of (laptop) or my desktop computer. I selected both personal address book and the same name with pst on the end of the file ( on two separate trys!

Thanks in advance for any input!! Elizabeth
