My computer had issues so I restarted it. When I did and opened Firefox, it made me make a new account like it was a first time installation. I no longer have ANY of the information I originally had although it is still stored in the same directory that Firefox is using to store the new information including emails - it created new folders. I tried make a new profile but it still created new folders again. I'm using Firefox 38.2.0 and Windows XP Service Pack 3.

How can I recover 5 days of Downloaded emails lost after system freeze required a reboot.

64 bit Windows 10 Home addition, Thunderbird - Ver. 52.5.2 (x86 en-US) updated 01/05/18, Firefox v- Ver. 57.0 (x64 en-US) -system shows Firefox last updated 11/15/17. My PC has been wanting me to update Firefox, but I was telling it to remind me later for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I shut my PC down. 5 days later I turn my PC on, waited for it to boot, then started Thunderbird which automatically downloaded my last 5 days worth of emails from the server. My PC then froze. Eventually I powered down my PC and turned it back on. After it rebooted it asked me to sign in to Firefox to sync my devices. (I am assuming that it Firefox updated without my approval but it still shows the last update as 11/15/17.) After it completed the sync I opened Thunderbird again and found the last 5 days of emails were not in my inbox and Thunderbird will not download them again. It is downloading new emails when i receive them but not the ones it downloaded just before the freeze. Thunderbird is set to leave messages on server for at most 15 days and until I delete them. My question is how do I get Thunderbird to download the last 5 days worth of emails again without affecting all my other emails and without duplicating emails that were previously downloaded?

How can I copy a back-up email profile for just 1 of my 4 email accounts?

I have 4 email accounts on Thunderbird. I got the insufficient disk space message, and compacted all 4 email accounts. I also used "Repair Folder" on the inbox of the largest (Ranch4) of the 4 email accounts.

I then noticed that 4 folders under the Ranch4 email account no longer display their sub-folders. These happen to be the largest folders, which contain several years of email. I backed up my complete Thunderbird profile (from app data folder) 2 months ago. This includes data from 3 of my 4 accounts (I added 1 account since my last back up 2 months ago).

If I simply copy the last profile copy back to my computer, I will lose all the data from my new account and the recent data from the 2 unaffected accounts. I would prefer to just bring back the data from Ranch 4 (I am okay with losing the data in that account from the last 2 months).

I would be grateful for any assistance on this.
