Confusion Transferring TB Portable settings

Hi all,

I'm a bit confused here as what I'm about to say. You see, I'd like to be able to transfer all my emails and settings from my local Thunderbird into Thunderbird Portable. I've read the section in Thunderbird Portable Support about transferring the settings, I've followed the directions to where to get my local Thunderbird settings (I use Windows XP at the moment, so it's under the Documents And Settings folder). I checked the instructions again and it said to copy the files into the Data/Profile directory within Thunderbird Portable, that's where I'm getting confused.

The thing is, when I opened the Data folder (G:/PortableApps/ThunderbirdPortable/Data), I couldn't see a Profile folder there. Am I looking in the right folder or do I have to create a profile folder in the Data folder?

Thanks to anyone who can help!

You are looking in the right place

that is indeed the correct folder.

The profile folder would usually be created the first time you ran TBP, and populated with default values. In your case, it should be possible to just create the folder and copy the contents into it.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for the fast response, I really do appreciate it! That's true, I haven't yet started Thunderbird up as I only just re-installed it on my USB the other day! I will definitely create the folder and copy what is needed into it!

Thanks once again!
