iCloud on my Mac


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?
