Thunderbird Address Book - Recovery

more options


  A friend upgraded from an older version of TB ~ V78? to the current release

She LOST her Address Book in the Process :-(((( Is there a way to recover her old Address Book entries ?!

If not.....would System Restore in W10 recover it by putting back her old V of TB?

Thank you

PS I would humbly suggest that if a LDIF Auto Backup of ones Address Book could be included in a new release that EVERYONE would be very Thankful !

Which files named abook or history are present in any profile folder? Look for abook.mab, abook.mab.bak or abook.sqlite, same for history. Note that in TB 91, .mab files (Mork database) can be imported from Tools/Import...Address Books...
