Re: [Evolution] Backup and Restore

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

guenther, I wasn't offended by it.  Thought it meant something like "argh", 
"yuck", or anything else that describes the woe I was feeling.

I am pretty sure I cannot describe your feelings appropriately. Granted,
that first "ack" comment was pretty short and should have been more

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.

Thank you and others for being patient and understanding and taking time to 
clarify things.  guenther, you have been a big help.

Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately I could not help with this
major issue.

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.

guenther, please accept my apology for this misunderstanding.  I surely DID 
NOT mean to imply that any of the advice was incorrect.  I take full 
responsibilty for the outcome of my situation.  Your posts were very helpful 
to me because they "went the extra mile" for someone with limited knowledge.

No need to apologize, Celsun -- I pretty much understood your comments
regarding my posts and did not take it as allegation.

I just got paranoid again and had to re-check my posts. ;-)  I really
would hate if others suffer that badly from false advice by me. This can
be even worse, as I am aware of the archives and the great benefit of
mailing lists to spread information to users simply by reading and
following the posts.

Even though it was done in the wrong directory :-(  I think the backup was 
done correctly.

Well, if the backup would have been done correctly, you must have an
archive with some contents.

Anyway, trying to reconstruct the exact command is pretty useless, as
this won't change anything now. If that archive is about 40 Bytes small,
this does not seem to contain your data, unfortunately. If it would be
notedly larger you might wanna try checking its contents. [1]

The output you obviously have seen while archiving beats me though. No
idea why this should produce an empty archive...


[1]  Well, if you wanna check your backed up archives anyhow, you can
use tools like 'file-roller' or 'mc' to browse it. Treat it like an
directory in mc.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
