I tried to sync my calendar and tasks on my nokia e75 with

After 20 seconds it stopped and now all my data from my phone is

only synced to evolution from my phone.
This creates a serious problem for me! Please respond quickly!
attached is the log file
According to that log file, no data was ever transmitted between phone
and SyncEvolution. That means there is no hidden copy of your data on
the desktop side.
If the phone had data on it before the sync, then it should have sent
that in this first slow sync. SyncEvolution did not ask for data to be
deleted on the phone. If the phone did that instead of sending it, then
there's nothing that SyncEvolution can do about it.
I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you. I wonder what could be
done to avoid something like this. Does the phone provide manual data
export into files? Recommending such a manual backup should be listed in
the phone sync HOWTO.
Another approach might be to fetch items in "refresh-from-client" mode
into a local backup (not Evolution), synchronize locally, then write
back with "refresh-from-server".
I have no idea whether that would have worked better in this case,
though. A phone which deletes its data in a "slow" sync might also
decide to do that in *any* kind of first sync :-/
