    Where are contacts stored?

    Can someone tell me where contacts are stored in Windows 8? I would like to copy the folder to a flash drive and then import them into a new installation but can't find the folder they are in.

    Thank you

Hi I'm using a App called Quicknote. I'd like to sync the notes with another computer but I don't find the storage folder. The same with other Apps. If I know the folder, syncing with Dropbox or something similar should be no problem. So, anyone knows the location? Thanks
