I have just upgraded my Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro. I used the Microsoft easy transfer program. The transfer mostly went well.
I use Thunderbird for my email. It was copied to an external drive along with my other files. I have reinstalled Thunderbird and it works just fine. I can't figure out how to import / copy my old emails and contacts into the new Thunderbird.
I can't browse the Microsoft “Old_ComputerFiles” file to see the Thunderbird files but I did do a backup with Norton in addition to that backup. I can see these files and browse them in my new Windows 7 Pro.
The problem is that when I try to do a restore Norton it only sees the recent backups from the new install of Windows 7. I can't use Norton to browse to the old backup I did prior while I still had Windows XP Pro.
I have researched and it seems to me that all I need to do is copy the “profile” folder paste it into Thunderbird after I have deleted the new profile folder from the new Thunderbird.
I have used MozBackup to back up my old Thunderbird file and then restore it to my new computer but I always get a new Thunderbird that does not include my old emails and address book. I've run out of ideas...
Also I could never find that “roaming...” file pathway.
Is there a way to browse the files that were backed up by the Microsoft easy transfer program?
