Hi, I have just replaced my HDD with a new one and kept the previous one as a slave, I have installed Win 7 and added all my programs and data back on. what I need to do is transfer Thunderbird in it's entirety from the old to the new. I have installed a new copy of Thunderbird on to the new HD but I can't work out how to transfer the accounts along with all my emails. Some help please. regards

Mozbackup will do what you require:enter link description here

Just backup from the original and restore to the new.

This may help as well.

Ok thanks but none worked. I have had to set up t/bird manually on my new HDD, How do I find my old email inbox folder and copy it so I can and add to my new T/bird installation

This may help.

(you could try Mozbackup again now you have setup the account)
