How to Restore Your Eudora for Windows Address Book from a Backup

By

Restoring contact (and contacts) has never been this easy! If you have made a backup copy of your Eudora address book, recovering lost addresses is a matter of copy and paste.

Restore Your Eudora for Windows Address Book from a Backup

To recover the contacts in your Eudora address book from a backup copy:

  • Open the folder where you keep the backup in Windows Explorer.
  • Highlight "NNdbase.txt" and the "Nickname" folder.
    • If you have also backed up the auto-complete history, highlight "History.lst" as well.
  • Select Edit | Copy from the menu to copy the file and the directory.
  • Now go to your Eudora folder in Explorer.
  • Select Edit | Paste from the menu and overwrite exiting files and folders to restore your old Eudora address book.

Note that recovering from a backup will overwrite the current Eudora address book with the backup copy.
