Re: [Evolution] where is the data ??

Once again... ;-)

I have two systems on a lan; one is the 'backup'. I would like to copy 
updated Evolution files from one to the other. However that does not 
seem to work.

This has been answered. Actually, this topic is quite exhausted just
this month. Please see the archives of November 2003 at

For convenient searching, download the Text version of the entire month
and import it (create a new mail folder in Evolution and drag-n-drop the
downloaded file onto this folder).

Read all threads/mails with subject:
 * Synchronising laptop and desktop evolutions
 * syncronization again
 * Multisync
 * Syncing laptop/desktop email using unison, files to sync?
 * moving - import/export?

However, some quick notes: (I am assuming you are using recent Evolution
1.4.x versions only.)

Where is the contact information kept?

The default path is ~/evolution/local/Contacts/

What has to be copied to to maintain contact data?

~/evolution/local/Contacts/addressbook.db should be sufficient.

However, there are background tasks running, you have to run 'evolution
--force-shutdown' before you can sync Contacts / Calendar / Todo.
Otherwise this may lead to data corruption.

Alternatively you can use MultiSync to sync them.
