is the "prior" installation o this computer? or are the Archive folders part of an IMAP account?

IF the answer to those two questions is no, you wil not be able to access previous information.

IMAP stored mail on the mail server. Thunderbird local folders store mail on your local device. So if you change computers using local folders or POP then all your mail stays on the old device unless you actually copy it.
