Email accounts have disappeared from Thunderbird.

Posted

When I turned on my PC this morning it said that it needed to restart as there was a problem with my C drive. When it restarted my 3 emails accounts that I had on Thunderbird had completely disappeared. I have managed to get one of these back and can send and receive emails but all my subfolders that I had with important information in are not there. How can I reinstate my email accounts together with all my subfolders (my calendar has also gone).

Hi. Thanks Matt. Sadly it's not working (my other half knows alot more about computers than me and has been trying most of the day to sort this out to no avail). I might have to try a computer repair shop as although the files seem to be there they won't open (I don't really understand all this to be quite honest!). Thanks again.
