Friends,

I'm back and still tearing my hair out about Vista. I was able to use the Easy Transfer program with a USB drive to copy files but it turns out that NO programs copied over.

Is there any way that I migrate my Mozilla Thunderbird folder so that all my old messages will still be accessible (and addresses, too!).

Similarly, just last year I bought two Cepstral voices, and I wish I could migrate them, too. But I can't even find a "programs" folder on Vista.

Thanks,
Patricia

MozBackup works great, but you can also copy your settings folder (from c:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxxxx) and paste the files in the folder (NOT THE FOLDER ITSELF) in your new profile. I do both, MozBackup and copying the files.

Edit: Nevermind, that location. I think in XP it's C:\Application Data\Thunderbird....
