Re: Advice for moving to a larger hard drive


You could only export your Evolution data using the export tools and
then import this backup to your new install.

To do this, go to "File" then click on "Archive parameters".

This will create a tgz file with everything in it. Settings as well as
data that you will be able to import in the new install using "File",
"Restore Settings".
