I'm trying to restore my old emails on a new linux install (Fedora 15)
from my saved .evolution folder. But all I see there are a cache
folder and a tasks folder. And even tho I did an rdiff-backup of my
entire home folder yesterday (9/20) before I started the new
installation, the backup shows Sept 8 as the date modified, even tho I
have been using evolution extensively since then.
Our backup tool is apparently broken.  It still tries to archive the
~/.evolution directory, which we haven't used since version 2.30.

I just filed a bug about this, but it's too late for 3.2 now.

So where are my email and calendar entries from the past two weeks? I have a backup of my .evolution folder, but it's not there. Where is they kept, so I can recover them? I have a full rdiff-backup backup of my old home directory, but I can't find them anywhere there.

Btw, I was using a completely updated version of Ubuntu 10.04 and it was still keeping all my email in ~/.evolution.
