Evolution Backup


Hi I'm trying to create a backup of my evolution files as I want to reinstall a new distro, but it seems that copying the ~/evolution folder only saves messages and contacts and stuff. It does not transfer account info and prefs. Does anyone know where the config file for that info is? That way, I can just make a copy of that and transfer it over.
Thanks
Vishal

the evolution folder should contain everything you need.

I will have a samba drive mounted and use a command something like this:

tar -czvf/mnt/cdrom/mailbackup.tgz evolution

This will tar all the evolution data and copy it to my mounted directory on the server.

hope this helps,
Vince
