View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.10 update crashed Evolution database

December 1st, 2010, 04:04 AM
I always install the Ubuntu Updates that automatically pop up every few days.

Today I installed the update and it wiped out my entire Evolution database.

The Evolution e-mails and e-mail history are still there, but not a single Contact.

Is there any way to 'uninstall' today's update or go back to a time before it was implemented?

Is anyone else having this problem? I do have a database backup, but its about a month old. So I don't want to import it unless there is no way to get the current version back.

There is an 'addressbook.db' file (24MB with a recent date) in the '.evolution' folder. But Evolution won't let me restore it. It says its an invalid backup file. How do I get Evolution to recognize the 'addressbook.db' file?

I'm up to date, and my Evolution is fine.
