Recover corruption by out of space

Asked by Shahar Or on 2009-05-27

Dear friends,

Following running out of disk space, Evolution opened up showing the
"clean state" welcome wizard. I assume that some file got corrupted
somewhere - is that plausible?

Does anyone have any idea on how to recover from this, please?

The data should still be there - ~/.evolution is 1.2G .

Many blessings.

If some data is corrupted, than evolution will warn you when you start it.

Thanks for this information.

It would really be helpful if I can get some debug information from
evolution. --debug=some-file.txt only gives two lines of irrelevant
stuff.

If you want to get more debug, than you may want to install gdb and evolution-dbg, but you won't see any information about data loss: if evolution has never shown you a "Recover" dialog, than you shouldn't worry.

Dear friends,

I've worked around the .db file by importing everything like in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=103838 and the mbox files manually.

Many blessings.
