Contacts lost after upgrade to Sierra. I have three Macs (two MacBook Pro's and one Mac mini. Alls upgraded, all worked fine, but my contacts are gone form the Mac mini. All are sync'd their iCloud
, as is my phone and iPad. The iCloud site is happy with the contacts, only the Mac min seems to have lost its marbles. I've turned iCloud sign off and an a bunch of times, no change. There is one and only one contact in my Mac mini address book
. The world will not end if I loose that. I've seen some web posts that suggest deleting the AddresBook files (AddressBook-v22.abcddb*, in Applications. I tried that, restarted Contacts , the files came back the same size but with today's date and the same symptoms. Also tried doing the same thing with iCloud sync disabled, Contacts came up empty until I re-enabled iCloud and then it went back to the same state (1 card only in Mac mini contacts, all others happy). Oh yes, and that one contact which is in the Mac mini also made it into the other iCloud copies. Any ideas?
JA: Just to clarify, how old is your MacBook Pro and what operating system are you running?
Customer: One MacBook pro is 2010, the other 2012. The problem, however, is with my Mac Min, which is 2015 vintage.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: It's running 10.12.1, but I've wrestling on and off with this problem wince my 10.12 upgrade. BTW, there's another Mac mini in the house which is on a different account and that one doesn't exhibit this problem.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: You did read the start of this thread, right?
JA: Anything else you want the Mac expert to know before I connect you?
