That did it! I have no idea why I did not put the leading '/' there.

This is great! Solves the problem of automated backups, and simplifies
the restore as well!

Thanks, Milan, Patrick, and Pete!

As had been said, the 'evolution-backup' executable can be stored on
a different place in your distribution. Search for it in that case.

It was in the expected place, but due to PEBCAK, I did not actually run

I did notice, while testing, one error message saying that something
changed during the backup. I also notice, in the same directory as
evolution-backup, a file called killev. Would that be safe to use, and
would it completely shut down Evolution and all its processes?
