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.
A "completely updated version of Ubuntu 10.04" still means an 18-month
old version of Evolution.  We've moved the files since then.  See the
bug for details.

Both ~/.local/share/evolution and ~/.cache/evolution are empty on the backup I did yesterday before I reformatted by HDD. Where are my emails?

I think I found them on the backup when I went in from the command line as root. For some reason the files did not copy from the backup when I told it 'cp -R * /home/eric' as root.

Should I just copy the .local/share/evolution folder to replace the existing one on my new installation?
