Where are Thunderbird local folders, are they on he C drive of my desktop Windows 10 computer?
I want to move Thunderbird local folders to an external drive (Seagate). I am working on a desktop computer with Windows 10. Where are the Thunderbird local folders? The files don't display anywhere in Windows explorer. I am able to transfer all other files such as jpg. and pdf. files from the desk top computer to the external drive by dragging and dropping, but I can't locate the Thunderbird local email files so as to be able to drag and drop.
Local folders are within the Mail folder of profile, which is on C drive.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Thank you for your help attempt. I do not find a mail folder within profile, within C drive. I have drive the path C: %USERPROFILE%; no mail folder there.
Start Thunderbird click help>moretroubleshootinginformation scroll down to 'profiles' click 'open folder' open Mail folder, then Local Folders and they should be there. Exit thunderbird before copying.
