Brandon, I was following you right up to the point where you say something 
about the size of your hard drive. From the tone of it, I have to guess, and 
I do mean guess, that you're implying that to do it by just copying or 
moving the file from one folder to another in Windows Explorer, if you care 
to, requires a huge hard drive? Or..? I really don't get what you mean,. 
Would you mind taking a second and saying it differently? If you were to 
copy or move your Address Book file from within Windows Explorer, what would 
this have to do with the size of your hard drive? I can't even guess, 
actually.

Thank you.

I think it comes down to personal preference. IT's not that I don't know how
to file manage, but I just prefer to export the file an know where it saves.
It's not like i have a 10GB hard drive.
