Mails gone - please help

Hi,

i started my Thunderbird Portable this morning and everything seems to be gone.
It asks me to setup my emails like nothing is installed. Its looks like my ThunderbirdPortable.exe is starting Thunderbird 91.3.2?

The mail folders are still there and full but Thunderbird cant "find them" anyome?. For example: E:\Mail\Data\profile\Mail\pop.gmx.net

Using Windows10, external drive.
Any advice?

Thanks a lot!

I fixed it after a few days

I fixed it after a few days of trying.
I had to create new accounts in Thunderbird portable with my existing email accounts.
Then overwrite manally the inbox files with the accounts which could not be found anymore.

The one thing i was struggeling with was the choice between pop or imap.
Have in mind that imap syncs with the server no matter wats in the inbox file. So i had to choose pop dor one account to see my old messages.

But again, this all happened after a thunderbird portable update which should not happen.
Cheers!
