Evolution seems to have deleted all my emails after an upgrade to natty, is there a way I can recover this data? Is there some mystical folder somewhere that stores this data or should I just forgive and forget?
What i did before upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 was first make a backup using Evolution and when the backup was complete i also made a copy of my .evolution folder in my home directory. After the upgrade i restored the Evolution backup and and copied the .evolution folder into my 11.04 home directory and all my data (including my sent mail and other folders i made and stuff i saved) was ready to use. But once you upgraded your Ubuntu all the old data will be removed... so consider it gone.
