My inbox has 44000 messages. Is there any way to move all these messages to another drive?
My C drive, which is an SSD seems to keep filling up by itself. Virus scans find no problems. I suspect if I could simply empty my inbox it might help. I'd really like to move everything to my D drive, which has terrabytes of space.

THANK YOU for your prompt reply.
My D drive has 47 GB free space - a large percentage of the full 2 TB. The C drive has 14 MB free and will not allow installation of new programs or updates of Thunderbird. Attempting to update yields a message asking if I have another copy of Thunderbird running.
The profile appears to be on the D drive (D:\TbirdProfiles\ - contains 173 files with 7 GB). I tried bringing up profile manager but don't see any way to use it to move messages anywhere.
Thanks again, Michael Bate
Hi Michael There is an easy way to check whether your actual profile with all the current emails is actually on C: or on D: Hamburger menu - Help - Troubleshooting information Look for Profile Folder - click Open Folder. That will show you where your current active folder is storing all those emails. If it is already on D: you don't need to move anything, but look for another culprit using up all your C: space. After that, if the profile is in C:, there are guides for moving your profile. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder_-_Thunderbird Agnes
