Clear out .Mac Address Book?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
How do I empty my .Mac address book. I have all of my business/personal contacts sorted etc. on one of my Macs, but an accidental sync put thousands of names from the corporate GAL in my .Mac address book. Now, whenever I sync it wants to add those to my local Address Book and I don't want them...

How do I get my Mac to overwrite .Mac? Thanks!

    open iSync on the computer that has all the right info.

    go to devices and click on reset all devices, click reset all on popup window configured to this computer.

    God, I love this place. Always friendly helpful people around when you need them...Hopefully, I'm one as well as I try to help when I can.

    Thanks again! Worked like a charm.

    Remember how to do that. It's almost guaranteed that at some point you'll have to use that again. Things get a little wonky sometimes and that and "Revert to last sync" are lifesavers.

    beware the palm as well, if you sync to a palm and aren't careful you may wake up with either lost contacts or duplicated ones. not to mention all the iCal/datebook dilemmas i've had.
