Can not export Windows Mail vista messages

I'm in Windows Mail in Safe Mode but I can't set a directory to export the files to. I am able to export to Microsoft Outlook or Windows Exchange but I can not export to Windows Mail. The main problem is that I can not browse for an export folder. Every time I click on browse I can't see any folders.

    Also, why are you trying to export from Windows Mail to Windows Mail? That sounds counterintuitive.

    I would like to backup the emails and then access them later after a restore of the computer
