Yep. If you have more than one, then abook-1.mab, abook-2.mab, 
abook-3.mab, etc.

go to trouble shooting menu from Help, scroll past to 'application basics' , that will indicate the path to folder to files. mab files , but  you can copy the entire profile folder to a backup drive in the event you need to restore

When I go to my 'Help' menu, in SM 2.49.5 (same as OP), I don't see 
anything like 'application basics' to scroll past.

Have you missed a step or two, maybe, rmpbklyn??

Weird.
"Application Basics" is the first section on my "Troubleshooting 
Information", as you can see I'm running 2.49.4 on this (Linux) machine.
Just for giggles I clicked on the "Open Directory" button in the 
"Profile Directory" entry.  It mangled the path and told me that mangled 
path did not exist - doh!, no idea why it tried to open that 
non-existent path in Super-User mode.  I'll have to check those bugs on 
a more current version.
This is also pretty irrelevant - the OP clearly knows where the profile 
is, he just did not know which file was the address book.

Those bugs (bad path, opening in SU mode) have been fixed in the Linux 
2.53.2, things also work as they should on my Windows 10 machine with 
2.53.2.

You missed the troubleshooting menu step. ;)

Better known as Help > Troubleshooting Information.

In Troubleshooting Information, try looking at "Profile Folder".  There 
should be a button there to show you the profile.
