Windows Mail Help
Posted on 2012-03-15
All, I have a windows Vista PC in desparate need of some TLC and a rebuild. My C: drive has been partitioned with huge partion of it dedicated to data (docs/music/pictures etc etc).
However, what I failed to realise was where Windows Mail stores its emails, (AppData\Microsoft......) as a result I am having to create an export ready for when I rebuild it, but I suspect that when I import after the rebuild, I am going to lose all of the folder structure beneath the inbox (as happen when I had to do this in Windows Live).
I deally I would like to repoint Windows Mail to save emails on the K: drive data partition (which I regularly backup to external drive).
Question is two fold really, how can I do this now and have Windows move all of my saved email to the K: drive from the C: drive? How after rebuild can I then point Windows Mail to pick up the K: drive mail location?
Or should I simply abandon Windows Mail and import the whole lot in to Outlook (which I have as part of my Office install, but don't use).
