Copying desktop TB to PTB

In the "Copying your local TB settings" instructions, it says to look for:
C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\default.???\

However, on my desktop I don't see any folder called "Application Data" at all, and I've run a search of the entire hard drive. Ditto for the folders MAIL and IMAPMAIL and the pref.js and abook.mab files.

Any ideas? My desktop's Thunderbird works just fine...so I'm at a loss.

On a potentially unrelated note, I noticed that Memorex 1GB USB flash key is specifically marked as "USB 2.0" and I'm pretty sure I'm plugged into USB 2.0 ports, but damned if it doesn't take a looooong time to copy only 30MB to the key. Any ideas what it might be? How does one make sure that one's ports (not the device, the ports) are really USB 2.0 and not USB 1.1?

Thanks for any help y'all can give me!! Smile

Little tip

Open Internet Explorer and type %APPDATA% (or %APPDATA%\Thunderbird) in url bar and go Wink

In alternative, from "Start Menu --> Run", type %APPDATA%.

...

Why go to the trouble of opening IE to do it? Just open My Computer and type the same thing.
