evolution --force-shutdown

tar -cvzf /mnt/jumpdrive/evolution.tar.gz evolution .gconf/apps/evolution

New computer:

Mandrake 10.0 Evolution 1.4.6

evolution --force-shutdown

gconftool-2 --shutdown

cd ~

tar -xvzf /mnt/jumpdrive/evolution.tar.gz

When I did this the first time, I didn't know about the 
“gconftool-2” shutdown.  Although the transfer to the new 
computer was successful at the time, today when I opened Evolution, 
everything I restored was GONE.

Everything?  Or just your settings?  I dont believe everything would be gone.

I just transferred to a new hdd, and the above steps worked fine (evo 1.5 mind you, but it should make no difference).
