I made the mistake up upgrading to the latest beta, not realizing it would convert my datafile to a different format and you can't go backward. I have done recovery over the years, but all the help refers to the old formats. Opening TB just causes it to hang. I have a large thunderbird file with a lot of files. I thought maybe a folder that I use a lot was too large so I tried splitting it in 2 but it has been unable to sync those since I moved them. Instead my whole computer hung and it turned out 400+MB was being taken by a folder which gets created when a folder can't finish compressing, but I had no choice but to delete that because my computer wouldn't function. In the past when a folder wasn't working right I would delete the folder index file and it would rebuilt the index and re-built that folder. Now all of my folders have mozmsgs but only some have sbd's. And the new folder isn't even there, although it's showing in my TB app when it opens.
I need to know what types of files I should delete in order to have my folders re-sync to the server.
