I upgraded my wife's laptop from Vista to W7. Good move - it runs so fast
I'd think it's a different laptop. And when I started windows live mail, it
imported all of her contacts and emails. But where did her folders go?
TIA, Paul

Have you tried a manual folder import? See
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-messages.html

I don't know where the OS upgrade puts the original Windows Mail folders.
Do you have a Windows.old folder in the root of the C: drive?
I would have done a message export first, just to be on the safe side.

Search for *.eml and you should be able to find the older message store (hidden), unless WLM wipes it out.

I think you misspelled "ggcgcjtyd". Shouldn't it be "gacgcjtyd"?
