Yesterday while setting up a different computer, I removed many HDDs from the old (working) computer, leaving only the main bootable C: hard drive. To my surprise, when I tried to boot Thunderbird from this last HD, the profile looked like 1st image attached.
So I went ahead and looked at the profiles, and I just found the two profiles marked in the second picture. The one called pmc... is able to start and shows content, but only holds old e-mails, and passwords are not there anymore, the one called qix... shows a similar picture to the first one, but the cardbook label isn't broken, and I still receive e-mail notifications of new emails, so it seems to work. Also as you can see from the blank dropdown in "Receive messages", all addresses are still there.
Things I've done: - Reinstalled Thunderbird. - Started Thunderbird in Profile Manager mode. - Tried to edit the prefs.js from qix as I found references to other profiles that were not there when I first opened %APPDATA%. I've tried replacing those with qix, but that didn't work. - Made a new Profile and tried to import with ImportExportTools NG from the folder itself, but 3rd image happened.
I don't know if Thunderbird had any profiles saved in a different folder than C:, I've been looking inside the other HDs but there wasn't anything Thunderbird related in them. Thunderbird opened before reinstalling, so the installation was located in C: and worked fine.
My objective would be to retrieve a fully working Profile from qix which seems to be the most recent profile, if not possible, I'd need at least to recover the e-mails from every inbox so I can use them in a new one.
