I'm trying to move Address 7.0 data from one computer to another, Windows XP to Windows 7. When I try to backup data, so I can restore on the other system, I get a not enough space message even though there is space. When I try to import a comma, delimited export of data I get a not the right format message even though the format and my selection is correct. Why is this and what is the recommended procedure for moving data?

It's possible that the application isn't compatible with Windows 7 which means you will have to take a different approach. First make sure you install the application correctly with the compatibility tweaks applied, then use a user with Administrator rights to start it. This will give Address Book exclusive permissions to the system partition. This is one problem related to the import feature provided by the application.
