Question How to backup contacts addresses in KDE Kontact

hi all...

well, my brand new 250GB Maxtor drive is failing, and I'm trying to get all the data off it that I can while it still randomly allows me to boot up. (literally - this drive is 2 months old. it's the 3rd maxtor i'm sending back this year. why did i ever switch away from WD? because maxtor gets so many good magazine reviews... well, magazine reviews mean crap). can ya tell i'm a bit pissed? i finally convert to linux, and 2 months later, i'm in a position to have to reload EVERYTHING .... AGAIN.

anyway... sorry to complain and thanks for listening to me vent... my question is:

in KDE's kontact program, how can i back up my contacts and address book? For that matter, how do I back up the calendar?

I've found that all of the mail is stored in ~/.Mail - but where's everything else stored?

any help is greatly hugely and very sincerely appreciated.
