My apps, data and mail have been in different trees since Netscape. I
have copied those trees often. I have always used a file manager which
makes the task trivial, but also makes it easy to not be aware of the
content of what is being copied.
I was just doing some file maintenance, and checked some directory
sizes. They are listed below - sorry the tabs shift a bit in
transmittal. I have not dug deeply but here are a couple highlights.
In SM primary, calendar extension has 46 files and I am not even aware
of using a calendar. Something called storage has 35 files, mostly in
sub-directories with names which are derivatives of domains I recently
visited. Is the profile now a browser cache - in addition to the
"cache" blivet, which I have in a data tree separate from the profiles?
The data related to SM seems to have grown a lot when I wasn't looking.
The only things I have added to SM are Saved Passwords, Check Places and
Theme Font Size. At some point SM acquired Add Block, I don't know when
Are we that much better off now than with earlier versions?
