how do I shred emails in local folders

Posted

Using Windows 7, I used to store emails containing personal data in a Local Folder. When there were a number of emails I used File Shredder to shred the folder and the stored emails. The path to find the folder was easy using the File Shredder and Windows Explorer. However, I now have a new laptop running Windows 10 using Classic Shell but I cannot find the path to the folder in Local Folders in order to shred it. Can anyone help please to find the right path to shred the folder and emails.

See this article for the location of the profile. It isn't any different in Windows 10 than in Windows 7 though. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird

'Local Folders' are underneath 'Mail'.
