iCloud on my Mac

contacts

The backup of my new laptop seemed to get bogged down when it got to the Address Book folder in Application Support in my User folder – there are over 1.9M little files in there! So I'm trying to figure out how to fix this. The Address Book folder takes up 54Gb for my 495 contacts. I exported an archive, which is also 54Gb; I then exported a vCard file, with is 13.3Mb – more believable for that number of contacts. I'm thinking that the way to do this is to disconnect my Mac (Catalina) from iCloud, delete my User/Library/Application Support/Address Book folder, log into my iCloud account, delete all contacts, reconnect Contacts with iCloud, and import the vCard folder. Is this correct?
