Backup Evolution using the Terminal

When you want to backup your Evolution calendar, mail, memos, and address book, you have to open up Evolution, go to the file menu, and then follow a few steps before the backup is saved to your computer. This is generally fine if you backup infrequently and you’re able to remember to backup the application every time you perform a computer backup.

But eventually you might need some of those default apps back that you uninstalled and can’t find them.
