    Empty after restoring Evolution backup from 10.10

    Hi
    I've installed a blank 11.10 Ubuntu install, and previously I did a Evolution backup by copying the following folders to a safe place

    Code:
    ~/.evolution
    ~/.gconf/apps/evolution
    Now, I downloaded Evolution, started it, put some dummy config, and closed it

    Code:
    sudo evolution --force-shutdown && sudo gconftool-2 --shutdown
    Copied folders, overwrote existing ones, but when I restart Evolution I get nothing, no mails, no contacts, nothing...

    Is there any way to restore this info?

    Thanks,
    Enrique Becerra

    Found a solution

    Evolution now stores data in

    Code:
    ~/.local/share/evolution
    So I moved and renamed .evolution folder from backup, into .local/share/evolution and restarted Evolution

    When Evolution started for first time, it showed a Window asking me to upgrade mail format. Clicked ok and all went fine. Now I'm fighting with proxy connection but this is another problem.

    Please some mod mark as solved. Thanks
