OE saved folder to external HD

  Noels 20:05 01 Jun 2009

I have about 130 docs in my OE Save folder I would like to transfer to my external HD. Can it be done en-bloc not one at a time?
If not so be it!

can you not treat as" highlight all and transfer?

I thought I could but the only options appear to be to transfer to another OE folder not an external HD

IE 7
johnnyrocker I have tried everyway round to save to my La Cie external HD. I think I could copy and paste each individual doc but with 130+ docs its too late for that. Its not a life or death problem but I would like to save the lot if possible.

The problem occurs because "folders in OE are not folders at all - they're files (database files, to be exact).

All the individual emails in a "folder" (eg Inbox) are contained within this one single database file - and there is an associated index file which identifies which actual emails (database records) are active (ie displayed).

Your best plan is to use an OE backup program, which can also be used to look at, or recover the database(s).
