Hi all,
 
Ragarding access to Thunderbird profile, kindly note that: On Windows Vista/XP/2000, the path is usually %AppData%\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\, where xxxxxxxx is a random string of 8 characters.
 
Also, C:\users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\ is the access path that I found in Vista. This is required to be updated in the docs mentioned below.
 
In am a newbie to the forum...and you request and appreciate if someone guides me through.
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Secondly I would also like to add one more guidance tip on the section at : Application Data Folder
If you are unable to fing AppData, please do the following:
 
Start > Run > enter %AppData% and press Enter. You will be taken to the "real" folder, which is C:\users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming on Windows Vista.
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Also, it would be nice to know that, users can move around the Profile to some location or sda where the sda is not full(enough HD space). It is also possible to backup on a Remote Mounted location.
 
To do this:
 
 Shut down Thunderbird completely
 
 1. Go to: the path is ~/.thunderbird/
 2. In profiles.ini, locate the entry for the profile you've just moved. Change the Path= line to the new location
 3. Change IsRelative=1 to IsRelative=0 and lastly.
 4. Save profiles.ini and restart Thunderbird.
 
Thanks,
Sibir

I've written the steps needed to migrate Thunderbird Profile Data from
Windows XP. I don't have access to Vista.  Could someone read over this
section for me that's more familiar with Vista and let me know if
different steps are required?

Hey Sibir,

Thanks for your corrections, as I said, I'm no Vista user so I couldn't check if anything else had changed.

I'm updating the Wiki page to make up for my mistake.

Thanks!
