transfer to WIN11
I think I correctly copy the PROFILE folder on my USB transfer device. I think I copied it correctly copied it to the new machine. The 'address', 'deleted', and 'inbox' etc. The files are there on the USB, but they are empty on the new PC. I am doing something wrong I know, but I don't see where. I've spent a good deal of time...

It 'sounds like' you copied the profile piecemeal. Copy the entire folder, and do that when Thunderbird on old PC is NOT running or you will have a corrupted profile. I suggest copying again, just to be sure. Then, in Thunderbird on new PC, select tools>import>Import from another Thundebird installation>choose a profile folder.
Hello David. It turns out that I did the 'transfer" properly. I follow the steps and end up with a profile on my USB that coincides with when I installed Thunderbird. In other words my profile was not populated. Perhaps I am a little thick headed, but I think Mozilla's directions are incorrect. I did not 'go back three levels'. I succeeded when I highlited the whole of the profile folder, copied that and copied it to the new profile. seems to work. Thanks for your support. -leeb
