Re: [Evolution] Properly archiving Evolution data

Hello Andre:

I have several hundred folders and subfolders in my InBox.  Just A to D takes more than 100.  Just sorting the e-mail from clients and vendors once read is a task.  Same for sorting the Sent messages folder.  I could remove probably half of these from current use of I could archive each folder separately.

It is not a matter of fixed disk space.  I run 480 GB SSDs in each of my PCs, with roughly one-half of each SSD set for Ubuntu and the other half for Windows.  Have software installed so I can read and write across the Windows and Ubuntu partitions.

This is a very good question. I would like to be able to archive certain folders (for example, those from inactive clients), but be to bring them back quickly should I need them. I had that situation occur recently, and what saved me was that I still had the Outlook Express database intact on the Windows side of my laptop and also archived on the remote backup service I use for my Windows partitions on my PCs. Right now a full evolution (3.16.0) is almost 6 GB.
So the request to "archive" some data is driven by limited disk space and implies that the archive is located on some separate file system? (Still trying to understand which actual underlying problem people would like to solve by "archiving" data in an application.) andre
