View Full Version : [ubuntu] restoring Evolution

July 13th, 2009, 05:06 AM
So after re-installing Evolution this weekend, I am up to restoring Evolution and I found my configs in my old /home/username .gconf folder. I believe the mail data is stored in ~/.evolution though. If i did not back that up.. are my old email folders gone?

To close this thread out, your evolution email data is definately stored in ~/.evolution. If you don't back that up, they are going to be gone.

That needs to be added to anyone asking how to back-up their user files before performing massive changes to your system such as a new distro or reinstalling one.
