I got a scare a few minutes ago. I was about to move a number of messages from my inbox into a folder... only the folder had disappeared! Last night Thunderbird performed a compacting operation. I remember Outlook was famous for getting messed up after its compacting operations; therefore I made it a point never to compact Outlook.
I performed a search for the person's e-mail address; a number of messages showed up and I clicked on, "Open Folder." Miraculously the folder reappeared. HOWEVER, I've just gone through the folder and realize there's a jump from April to August, meaning everything between April to the first of August is missing.
I do regularly back up my Profile folders to another drive. Now I need to know how do I access these backups in order to restore the missing messages? It will require COMBINING a backup which I will create NOW (containing everything between Aug 17th to today) with the one I created on the 17th. How to do this?
And why did it happen??? The profile I'm talking about does contain four different e-mail accounts. Could that have contributed to the disappearing act?
Any assistance will be deeply appreciated,
