All my contacts are gone!

Hi, I created a login to try and solve this issue. I am on the latest Adium release. My Contacts List is now completely empty. I've been using it for years and all of a sudden they are all gone. I can search for names and sometimes they come up, but they come up as unauthorized (google chat). I use it for google chat and AIM. What in the world has happened? This is quite catastrophic. I might have accidentally deleted them all in one fell swoop?

If that is the case, how can I restore order? I've attempted to sign out, delete app, disable and reenable my accounts. I can't sort it. Help please!

First of all, I'm pretty confident your contacts are not gone. In many, many years of using Adium and giving support to users I haven't seen one instance of contacts being deleted.

Step 1:
Are you connected? From the "Adium" menu open "Preferences…" and select the accounts pane. Are your Gtalk and AIM accounts connected?

Hey, is there any backups database where all the contacts are stored? It would really help me right now.

Contacts are usually saved on whatever server you connect to with Adium.
