Mac Address Book

My Address Book on my Mac has been playing up lately. Takes an absoute age to load – sometimes up to an hour. Well I think I might have figured out what the deal is.

There are a couple of smart lists, one is for Old Data (entries not updated in 12 months or more) and the other is called Orphan. Now I didn’t set up the Orphan one, I’m pretty sure that some as a standard. The only reason I went to it was that I tried to delete another group and wasn’t allowed because Orphan cards were in there. When I’ve opened the Orphans list I saw that it contained 10273061 cards – that’s an aweful lot of contacts!

So, I think it’s time to rid myself of the Orphans and see if that solves my Address Book woes.

Update That seemed to do the trick!

Tell me what you think
