Any chance to retrieve old mails from an old profile directory?

Hello out there,

I have the following problem: After migrating to a new Windows 10 system, I have installed Thunderbird and tried to copy the old profile to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\ . But this did not work. Is there any possibility to retrieve the old mails out from the cache directory? (I cannot find any directory named "Mail" in the old profile directory). Only files in ..\cache2\entries\ do exist in the old profile directory named like "0F1BD59BAFF256E9D4F544F25D7B0A294C027A61"... Any ideas? Also a definitive negative answer is appreciated so that I can stop trying....

You are trying to put it in the wrong folder for a start.

it is C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles

Note if you have cache files. Did you copy from appdata\roaming? Cache2 should be in appdata\local and files and folders in "local" are of no use at all for migrating. IT would explain the truncated folder list that is puzzling you as well.
