My computer died. I had all the info on the hard drive transferred to an external hard drive. Got a new computer Downloaded Thunderbird And now, I would like to go to the external hard drive, get my profile and install it on my new computer to run with my newly downloaded version of Thunderbird. In case it's useful or relevant: The original download of Thunderbird...that I found on the external hard drive.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

One last thing; meaning, I would like to recover as many of my old e-mails and certainly my address book from the external hard drive.

Thunderbird stores profile in the appdata\roaming folder on windows. The appdata folder is hidden by windows, so you need to modify windows to show hidden and system files to see it in file manager.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data

note the shortcut %appdata% used is a windows variable that describes C:\users\[UserName]\ appdata\roaming where [UserName] is the user name/account name on windows.
