I have been using Thunderbird for more then 10 years, generally without any problems until today. Currently I have wersion 68.12.0 (32-bit), updated on September 17,2020, running under Windows 7. When I restarted my system today and launched Thunderbird there were no accounts (left panel was empty) and I was asking for creating a new account.
I have localized all my email data on disk - it is placed in two different locations:
1. e:\Thunderbird\Profiles\yrs7svk0.Poczta prywatna psk.pl
2. c:\Users\Olgierd\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\yrs7svk0.Poczta prywatna psk.pl
The first location contains data for two email accounts which were created as first accounts in Thunderbird long long time ago. This location was choosen by me. The second location contains all the remianing accounts (about ten of them) which were created later during using Thunderbird. This location was created by Thunderbird - I did not know this fact until today.
The email data in both locations is up-to-date because the modification date of INBOX files is set as today. So I may assume INBOXes for all accounts contain emails from the morning. The crash happened about noon and this is the last modification date of INBOX file.
I tried launch Thunderbird with command line options for these two profiles:
1. -profile "e:\Thunderbird\Profiles\yrs7svk0.Poczta prywatna psk.pl"
2. -profile "c:\Users\Olgierd\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\yrs7svk0.Poczta prywatna psk.pl"
The result was the same - empty TB. I tried also launch Profile Manager (optin -p) and start TB from it - with no results either.
There is no profiles.ini file in TB directory.
