Re: [Evolution] Backup and Restore

This seems odd. Which directory were you in when you ran the command
"tar czvf evolution.tar.gz evolution"? Because from what you wrote above
it appears that you were in ~/evolution and not in ~. In which case you
have made a tarball of the contents of ~/evolution/evolution which is
not what you wanted. This is what you should have done:

evolution --force-shutdown
cd ~
find evolution -name "mbox.*" -exec rm -f '{}' ';'
tar -cvzf evolution.tar.gz evolution

Here are the commands I use to backup evolution:
evolution --force-shutdown
find ~/evolution -name "mbox.*" > exclude-index
tar --exclude-from=exclude-index  -cjf yyyyyymmdd.tar.bz2 ~/evolution

The result should be the same btu the indexes aren't removed so nothing
changes for me when I restart evolution after backing it up.
