    boot from a live cd then startup shell (terminal) (applications , accessories, terminal)

    then type in

    gksudo nautilus

    then click view, show hidden files and tick it

    insert your usb thumb drive and copy the directory called





    .gnome2_private/Evolution (this directory may not exist)

    copy all those to your usb thumb drive. replace the hdd. reinstall ubuntu. reinstall these directory's from usb thumb drive.

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu
