On Windows 10, I want to migrate from Outlook to Thunderbird. The normal process says it can't find any files. I do find some new emails in junk and rash folders, but have to admit I'm not sure how those got there.
There are many mail files in subfolders of Inbox in Outlook but Thunderbird says it can't find them (see screenshot).
If it matters, this computer used Thunderbird years ago and still has folders, address book, and filters in place. Is it possible that's interfering with the imports? Would it help to scrub all that old data? If so, how do I do that?
Does the import create new Inbox sub-folders? It do I have to create them manually to match what's in Outlook in order for their contents to import?
I have followed each step in the migration of my data profile, but after pasting the Thunderbird folder in the Roaming folder, when I start TB, no mail msgs.

I had a hard drive failure and I have installed Windows 7 on a new drive and bit by bit I am repopulating the drive with programs. I am attempting (several times) to migrate my TB profile to the newly installed version of TB on the new drive. I am now very familiar with the location of the profile folder on the old and the new drives. I have followed the instructions on the support web page to the letter. I copied the TB folder from the Roaming folder on the old drive and pasted it into the TB folder in the Roaming folder on the new drive, C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird, overwriting the existing folder, and when asked, overwriting specific files as part of the process.
When I start TB, I have no email msgs, folders, subfolders, etc. I only have the address book and its contents. No preferences, no email accounts, etc. Note. On the old drive,the profile folder location was C:\Users\David\Documents\TB Mail Profile. It worked fine for years.
There are two folders in the Profile folder- 3anp8o3i.default and q226441r.default Below are the contents of the profiles.ini file in >Roaming>Thunderbird.
[Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/3anp8o3i.default
[Profile1] Name=TB Email IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Users\David\Documents\TB Mail Profile Default=1
Thanks in advance for reading this far. Please help.
