The motherboard of my previous PC died, and I don't have access to the M.2 C-drive. Fortunately all my old email folder were stored on a separate harddrive, and they are backed up. Folders have over 20 years worth of emails in them, I was using Eudora before Thunderbird. Using Windows 10/64 Pro
Just installed ThunderBird 78. Confugered all the options as before. (Old profile not available, but I had screen captures of the settings). Created a directory with the same name for email folders:
Exact same setup as before. I have about 20 historical folders with old emails, backed up. I copied them into the new computer, above directory name. But whenever I start up ThunderBird, it wipes out all the old folders, and replace them with a set of new, empty folders, the normal Inbox, Sent, etc. It is driving me insane. I need to use my old folders!
I have set ThunderBird not to check emails at startup, not to check every 10 minutes, not to delete any messages. Still the same thing (old folders deleted) is happening time after time. Should I uninstall version 78 and go back to an old version? This is not a feature, it is a major annoyance.
Please help. How can I get ThunderBird to recognise the old folders and not wipe them?
