I'm not sure what address book you mean?
Your e-mail contacts?
If you can, show us a screenshot of what you're trying to back-up, it may tell us more about it :)

Olrik

Sorry for the delay in getting back.
The address book i was using was just the one that you can access from - PROGRAMMES-ACCESORIES-ADDRESS BOOK.
When searching around i can only seem to find a short cut nothing else.
This might be down to my inexperience of course!

Heres the path to the address book.

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book

note you will have to turn on Show hidden files and folders. (My Computer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> check show hidden files and folders)

Copy it from your slave drive to "The exact location " on the main drive.
