Do a search for the files wab.exe , and copy this to floppy disc.

navigate to the file , right click and sendto 3.5 inch floppy A.
if you cannot find it search for files *.wab.

Open wab - the windows address book and choose to export it - it will thus export all the data and can later be imported by the reverse method. If you copy it to a CD you will need to copy the file to the hdd afterwards before importing back into the address book.

I seem to remember someone on these pages once saying that simply copying the WAB file itself does not work, as it does not copy the data properly so I always suggest going for the export option.
