i've been running the on the Thunderbird beta channel for a while now, but i'm starting to have issues with the way the beta program is running. how do i go about returning to the regular version of Thunderbird wiithout losing my saved emails and folders. i tried doing it the other day and all my saved folders and emails were gone. i had to do a windows system restore to bring them back. any help would be greatly appreaciated. thank you in advance for your time...Mike S

Chosen solution

Windows system restore is prone to deleting things essential to Thunderbird. So you have been lucky.

That should cover it.

Hi Matt....thanks for the information. and yes you are correct, i was lucky to get my files back. as i've learned over the years, you can never count on windows for anything, it's always a crap shoot. thanks again and have a great day.
