Please don’t use the ‘—dry-run’ option to restore . This option is used to try the
command without doing any changes. This command will restore the data stored in that
directory to your local PC(evolution).

Subject: Please help - restore from backup syncevolution
Today I had very bad day with sync, initially normal sync from my Nokia E52 with ovi.com
messed up many contacts with numbers from different contacts getting into different
So i decided to clean phone, ovi.com
and restore from PC. Then I did sync with phone and
PC with Ovi.com
Somehow I forgot to set sync direction for Notes and Notes were deleted from both phone
I still have contacts, Calendar but not sure if it's all well.
So my only reliable data was in Evolution which I had synced few days back. I decided to
try that with syncevolution on bluetooth. To be on safer side I decided to start with
calendar+todos and memo(notes)
Since I wanted to restore these to my phone, I had disabled "receive changes from
phone" but when i did sync it was completed with no change log in main screen. But I
found that now data was gone from both phone and Evolution. I thought as if I lost
everything. But then i released that there is some backup.
When I checked log directory, i indeed found that before/after states being recorded for
each sync. I then tried your suggestion as in following link.
But it didnt help. actually i couldnt understand it to be honest. could you please help me
here? I am attaching my screenshots of log directory. Please let me know how to enter
i want to restore before states in directory virus-2010-07-28-01-13, i tried in following
command with memo
but when i used this command nothing happened
syncevolution --restore </home/suyog/.cache/syncevolution/virus-2010-07-28-01-13>
--before --dry-run "nokias60" memo
Also in syncevolution GUI , i cant see any backup which i can restore. see screenshot
Could you please help me? I am really in trouble as I have lost all notes, calendar,
contacts and Evolution logs are only last hope.
