Restore from backup didn't bring over my address book

My USB drive had a hardware problem and I grabbed a new one and restored from my most recent backup. All is there except it didn't bring over my address book. I had about 40 names in the address book. abook.mab on the new drive shows 2kb size. Is that about the right size for 40 entries? If I wind up restoring from earlier back-ups, how do I import just the address book without overwriting anything else?

looks light ...

that 2kb. If you do have to copy over from an old address book., you can just copy over that .mab and paste it over. Restore the tb to some dummy folder, and find the .mab and bring that over to your stable tb.

Looking back at an extracted

Looking back at an extracted abook.mab file from a November backup, it's size is the same (2kb). Looks like that file wasn't being copied for some reason.
