Thunderbird - Rebuild the File with No Extension

I lost the file with no extension for a folder, but have the .SBD folder with all of my emails in it. How do I rebuild the file with no extension. So the folder name is PMAfull, and the file PMAfull is missing, but the folder PMAfull.SBD is there. TB version is 3.1.9

Thanks

Unfortunately, the .SDBs are subdirectory definitions and do not help you. The files with no extension actually contain the emails themselves.

It appears that I made a mistake. What i have it this folder: "PMAfull.mozmsgs" not the SDB folder. In thiis PMAfull.mozmsgs folder are 23 files that have the text of each email in them, but without the header. With this new and correct informaiton, do you see any hope of recovering the emails?

Thanks

Yes.

Copy the missing files from the *.mozmsgs folder in your profile to a new folder.
Use the command prompt to change the file extension from .wdseml to .eml
Use Import/Export Tools Add-On to import the missing messages back into Thunderbird.
