[Evolution] Evolution backup problem


I'm not sure I can supply the info you want or if I can that I can do it
fast enough for you guys. You will see just how much of a newbie I am
but I need to learn.

So, the file size for >>> evolution-backup.tar.gz <<<< is 30.9 MB ( on
both the USB and the H.D ) and there seems to be plenty of space on the
external hard drive.

I backed up to the USB ( which works )...copied to the external hard
drive and as before...no go when trying to restore.

As best I can see both the USB and the Hard Drive are " Compatible with
all systems ( FAT) "

Re this para....

"Try creating the backup file on your local disk.  Can Evo restore from
there?  If so, try copying the backup file to the external drive - can
Evo recognise it now?  If not, are the two files identical?  (Look at
file sizes, if they are the same, then use diff on the two files.)"

Don't get cross but how do I do that???

Re this..

"You could also try doing 'tar tzvf evolution-backup.tar.gz' on the file
on the external drive.  Does it come up with an error?"

did you mean me to write that as a command in Teminal??

Sorry about my knowledge level
