View Full Version : [ubuntu] Post Install folder retreval?

December 7th, 2008, 07:45 PM

About a week ago I wiped out my UBUNTU 804 HD and re-installed UBUNTU 810 but, not before I saved my entire HOME folder (including the hidden material) to a folder on my WINXP HD.


I'm getting ready to Re-install UBUNTU-810 again. I have done some things unintentionally and it's not worth playing around with so soon after a new install. I might as well re-install again and do it right.

I suspect that some of the issues that I have experienced may have been from user rights with the original Ubuntu 804 home folder.

About the only thing hidden that needs restoring from UBUNTU 804, that I can think of at the moment, is my .Evolution Email material?

All the rest of the UBUNTU 804 HOME folder material are just the default standard folders and some additional files and folders that I added!

Could this (user rights) have been an issue?

Any suggestions on how to safely and easily recover that material (FOLDERS, FILES, EVOLUTION) back over?

Thanks for all your help.
