That exactly happened to me. I had expiration set to about 20% of my folder
and after my migration to my new computer (without copying the akonadi DB) the
expiration was set to totally different folder. One was my archive folder (easy
to restore because it was empty afterwards). Others were worse as I had to find
the missing mails first.
If I remember this correct part of the problem was caused by choosing an
integer ID instead the path/URL. I don't know how this is or will be solved in
So thanks for clearing this out.
But how is a backup supposed to be handled then? Always the complete DB?
