sunbird

Had Sunbird on hard drive that died.  Never used Export button to save entries.  Looked all over Mozilla folders for something that would contain my entries.  Nothing in Profiles.  Has to be there someplace.

Old hard drive was Win 7 Premium.

Any ideas?

Sorry wrong software....
Default Folder location - C:\Users\[userName]\AppData\Roaming\Sunbird
or
Sunbird: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles

Have a look at this Mozilla Wiki, https://wiki.mozilla.org/Calendar:FAQ#Where_is_my_Calendar_file.3F
You can perform a search across the whole hard drive for the database file "storage.sdb"...

Okay Ian Admino:

I found storage.sdb, all 61 KB of it, now, what do I do with it?  Sunbird does not recognize it as an import file, it only looks for .ics or .csv files.

Visualize your virtual and backup environments

Create well-organized and polished visualizations of your virtual and backup environments when planning VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Veeam deployments. It helps you to gain better visibility and valuable business insights.

 
Ian MeredithCommented:
I would suggest installing Sunbird on another PC and replacing the storage.sdb (in the new installation) with your copy (from your dead PC). Then run Sunbird, your data should be there.

Renamed new install Sunbird storage.sdb file to storage.sdbold and pasted old hard drive storage.sdb to Sunbird folder.  Opened Sunbird and get error message:

An error was encountered preparing the calendar located at moz-profile-calendar:// for use. It will not be available.

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [mozIStorageConnection.executeSimpleSQL]"  nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Sunbird/modules/calUtils.jsm -> file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Sunbird/calendar-js/calStorageCalendar.js :: anonymous :: line 220"  data: no]

Hi,
 Can you recall which version of Sunbird you were running on your old system?  Seems that the Sunbird version needs to be the same on your recovery installation.

Hello Ian Admino:
I give up!  I opened all versions of Sunbird and pasted the storage.sbd file to each and got the same error message that it was not compatible because it was from a "newer version".  I am sure that with your help we could eventually find a way to get this to work but it seems it will take more time than it would for me to just bite the bullet and input the same data into the new Sunbird.  Sometimes it is better to just give up rather than prolong the pain.

Thanks for your help.  I have given you the whole amount of points for your efforts.

Regards.

Hi Micheal,
Sorry to hear of the difficulties you've had with this issue. I can understand your frustration and agree that troubleshooting can sometimes consume as much time as recreating the data.
I appreciate you awarding me the points.
Best of luck,
Ian
