Re: [Evolution] Backup and Restore

[ snip ]

guenther, this doesn't even begin to describe how I felt, when I realized 
all those e-mails, contacts, etc... were gone.   :-(  Even now, I try not to 
think about it.

Celsun, this was in no way intended as you seem to understand it. I am
*really* sorry for you.

The "ack" is just a short way to say, the above is totally correct.
That's what I intended, as the info by Darren was really good. I just
wanted to comment and try to help.

guenther, the parts done correctly on my first attempt were from your posts 
on October 2003 - "Tips on restoring Evolution from backup" and November 
2003 - "Mail folder file locations." Thank you.  The parts that messed me up 
were from posts in late August and early September 2003.  The confusing part 
of those posts was just a plain "cd".  Yes, I'm new to Linux.  :-)

I just re-checked all those mails, and at least there is no false advice
given. This sure does not make your situation any better. I only checked
to make sure, there is nothing wrong left in the archives.

In fact, I am kinda paranoid when I advice folks how to mess with their
sensitive data. I double check those commands and I even treat them on
my own accounts before posting. Thus they are often copied directly from
my console.

It turned out to be a big mess and even though I saw hundreds of files being
archived, the archive file appears to be empty now. (46B) How and why did
this happen?

You should not have seen any file being archived (the v parameter is for
verbose, and thus any file archived is displayed while archiving).

Maybe I didn't state the above correctly.  After I typed "tar czvf 
evolution.tar.gz evolution", the screen scrolled real fast displaying the 

Your description was fine. Using verbose mode, those are the files being
archived. I just don't see, how you could get any output like that, if
there is no such directory. :-/
