In this post, we are looking for how to restore Mozilla Thunderbird Emails and Profiles manually. This is useful if you have a recent computer crash, or just want to migrate your all data to another PC. Follow this and I will demonstrate how to do Restoring lost Thunderbird emails and accounts manually in a Windows-based computer.
Restoring lost Thunderbird emails and accounts manually
- Your previous backup of Thunderbird Emails and Profiles.
If you want to start, make sure Thunderbird is not running. After this, right-click on your Thunderbird backup in Windows Explorer and remove it in your C: \ user \ AppData \ Roaming folder. This will keep all your backups in the right place where Thunderbird wants them.
Now, in the Start Menu type the following
The Thunderbird user profile manager should open. Click on Create Profile.
You can now enter a name for your profile, or leave it to the default. Profile name should not affect anything within Thunderbird. What’s important here is the folder you selected.
Click on to Choose Folder.
Click on the backup folder that you just unzipped and then click on Select Folder.
Back to Main Profile Manager screen, double-click on that profile that you just created to launch Thunderbird.
All your backups may have been effective, and your email will be waiting.
