Recovery of Address book

Jeremey Wise

I have an immediate issue. I have been forced by my management to convert from Linux to Windows again. (Grrrr)….

 

 

Ok.. now the issue. I burned a back up of my entire home directory (though the hidden files were not viewable via k3b so I had to rename .evolution to evolution). I also did my typical back via rsync to my master server which included .gconf and .evolution

 

Ok.. reloaded the laptop on a new drive. Everything seemed ok. Tried to then drag directories form local mail store directory to my exchange account mailbox. Some copied ok. Others failed. I then tried to copy my contacts over…. Crash…. Now I figure. “No problem”  I will just export and import.. Open evolution this morning and all my local contacts are gone! Ok.. I told the evolution client to remove the exchange connection to avoid syncing to exchange (now that I am on Microsoft Lookout) so I will just remove the .evolution directory and reload via my DVD backup and do a “evolution –offline” . Tried that. .Contacts still gone!!!!! No problem again I say… I have a total backup of my /home/wisej directory on my master server…. So, I tar up files and move entire home directory back (two hours later). Delete the .evolution and .gconf directories and untar the those folders into /home/wisej. Startup evolution –offine.  local contacts are all missing along with my local folders. Now I am worried… I have a third copy / sync at home but would like to find out what I am doing wrong.

 

Help.
