    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

  2. Have you tried a manual folder import? See
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3798-windows-live-mail-import-windows-mail-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.

  3. 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"?
