Thunderbird portable can't find profile

I have downloaded the Portableapps version of Thunderbird and it has worked for me over the years for running Thunderbird from an external HDD. Recently there was an USB connectivity issue and the volume was dismounted unclean. Now when I start ThunderbirdPortable.exe, TB can't find my profile anymore. Luckily, I see the profile folder is still there and there are backups of my emails, but how can I make ThunderbirdPortable recognize my profile again?

Thanks!

Setup: Windows 10 64 bit, Thunderbird 91.13
