Restore backup Thunderbird mail/calendar

I'm wondering why when I transfer all my mail and imap profile settings into thunderbird that it doesn't create an Thunderbird account. Do I need to reboot or do something else?

Here are some snapshots:

Here is my thunderbird sqlite file for the calendar but I don't see my calendar as updated:

Here my thunderbird accounts are not created even though I have all the files transferred to the folder:

Here is my IMAP folder with the files but the IMAP accounts are not showing. The POP accounts are showing up in Thunderbird but no accounts are created when I view Tools->Account Settings:

What else do I need to do?

Much thanks,

Hi ElcondCT,

I had to copy the entire folder and subfolders. I think II missed some files/folders/.

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
