Where are the Evolution 2.32 data files? I started to back up the
settings manually but realized the old directory (~/.evolution) is
empty. Where is the data kept now?

They are now in the .local folder [along with all the other stuff] in
accordance with the XDG Base Directory Specification.

Let's see if I'm clear. I should be able to get a full backup of
Evolution with the directories

~/.local/share/evolution
~/.config/evolution
~/.cache/evolution

.evolution and .gconf/apps/evolution are obsolete.

In case everything has been moved properly and if you don't see any
problem, ~/.evolution directory can be removed.

gconf is still used to store account related information for Evolution
so you will need to take backup of .gconf/apps/evolution.


What's the reason for the new spec?

To follow the standard basedir guidelines.
