I use my laptop for evolution (3.16.0 running under Ubuntu 15.04).  I 
also have 
a desktop with same version of evolution and same OS.
Home directories of both PC as well as other partitions on each SSD 
are backed 
up remotely to SpiderOak.
I regularly backup evolution using the backup function and store the 
backups on 
a SSD partition that is only for data files.  In other words, I can 
Ubuntu and not have to worry about overwriting evolution back up 

Good practice is to keep one's home directory on a separate partition
(for system updates) and back it up every night with an automatic
system (cron script usually). Your method seems rather manual and thus 

However the requirements of backup and those of synchronization between
multiple clients are not the same. As I mentioned in a previous post, I
have a whole bunch of email clients on different platforms accessing
the same email accounts. I definitely don't want to have to remember to
turn each of them off and transfer all my email to a different one
before using it. That's what servers are for.
