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?
Well I went ahead and did just copy the evolution directory over to my new install. Then chmod and then Evolution seems to have successfully converted to the new format.

Whew! some scary moments earlier.

Thanks for the help.
