Restored failed

Posted

I used to backup Thunderbird by Backup Thunderbird software. http://www.backupthunderbird.com/

Usually every 2 years. It was successfully restored every time.

But it failed this time. Everything is well restored. Except a lot of mails in some folder are gone. Can I get those mails back?

The backup file is .bak and file size is about 825 MB.

Thanks in advance

I haven't heard of that one before. The go-to backup solution used to be MozBackup, but its author has stopped working on it.

825 MB seems to be quite a small email collection by my standards (mine is 22.8 GB), so I'd be concerned that it hadn't collected everything. But the size does depend on how heavy a user you are, and how much old email you choose to keep.

You don't need a backup utility. The profile is just files in folders and can be copied using the regular tools offered by your file manager.
