How do I back up or save my Address Book? (Juno 5.0)

You can create a backup copy of your Address Book just to have on hand, or you can use the backup copy to move it to another computer on which you use your Juno account.

Each Juno account on your computer has its own USERxxxx folder. This USERxxxx folder stores your Address Book (and also your email messages and folders). So, before you can save a copy of your Address Book, you have to know the name and location of your USERxxxx folder. Once you have identified your USERxxxx folder's name and location, you can back up your Address Book by creating a copy of the file and moving it to a different location on your computer, or to a different completely new computer.


To find your USERxxxx folder:

  1. Click the Windows Start button, point to Programs, point to Juno, then click Juno System Information.
  2. A text file appears that contains information about your computer's resources and files that Juno needs to function. Scroll to the section labeled [Juno Users]. This section contains the name and location of the USERxxxx folders for each Juno account on your computer and will look like this:

[Juno Users]
username1=C:\Program Files\Juno\USER0000
username2=C:\Program Files\Juno\USER0001
username3=C:\Program Files\Juno\USER0002

  1. In this section, find the line of text that contains the user name for the account whose Address Book you want to back up. For example, the line could look like this:

yourusername=C:\Program Files\Juno\USER0002.

In this example, your USERxxxx folder name is USER0002 and it is located in the Juno subfolder of the Program Files folder on your computer.

  1. Write the location of your USERxxxx folder (which is the text after the equal sign) on a piece of paper. For the above example, you would write C:\Program Files\Juno\USER0002.

To save your Address Book in Juno 2.0, 3.0, or 4.0:

  1. Make sure you exit Juno.
  2. Use My Computer or Windows Explorer to locate your USERxxxx folder on your computer. If you need to, refer to the location you previously wrote down.
  3. Open your USERxxxx folder. Included in your USERxxxx folder is a file called addrbook.nv. This file is your Address Book. Select the addrbook.nv file.
  4. Go to the Edit menu and select click Copy.
  5. Paste this file into another location on your computer. For example, you can paste it on your desktop, or you can create a specific folder to contain it. If you want to move your Address Book to another computer, insert a disk into your disk drive and paste this file on to the disk.

To restore your Address Book to your account Juno 2.0, 3.0, or 4.0:

  1. Use My Computer or Windows Explorer to locate the Address Book file you previously saved. This is the addrbook.nv file.
  2. Select and copy the addrbook.nv you had saved.
  3. Locate your USERxxxx folder. If you need to, follow the previous procedure, "To find your USERxxxx folder," or refer to the location you previously wrote down.
  4. When you locate your USERxxxx folder, paste the addrbook.nv file in your USERxxxx folder.
  5. A box may appear asking if you want to replace the existing file. If you are sure that you want to replace your existing Address Book with the Address Book you saved, click Yes.

To move your Address Book to another computer on which you use Juno in Juno 2.0, 3.0, or 4.0:

  1. If you have not done so already, install and import your account on to the new computer.
  2. Use My Computer or Windows Explorer to locate the Address Book file (addrbook.nv) you previously saved on to a disk.
  3. Select and copy the addrbook.nv you had saved.
  4. Locate your USERxxxx folder on the new computer. If you need to, follow the previous procedure, "To find your USERxxxx folder," or refer to the location you previously wrote down.
  5. When you locate your USERxxxx folder, paste the addrbook.nv file in your USERxxxx folder.
  6. A box may appear asking if you want to replace the existing file. If you are sure that you want to replace your existing Address Book with the Address Book you saved, click Yes.
