Opened Thunderbird Portable at work this morning, per usual, and was asked by Thunderbird if I wanted to create a new e-mail account. I did not, as I was perfectly happy with the 4 I already have. Or, had, as all of my accounts have disappeared. They were most certainly there yesterday! I cannot see anything wrong with the profile folder, and I ran a CHKDSK on the drive and no errors were reported.
Is there anything I can do get my accounts to once again show up in TBP, with all of the e-mails that were there yesterday. I'm talking about something other than a "restore your backup" solution, which would mean losing several days of e-mails and calendar entries. I'm also talking about something that I can do now, as opposed to this evening when I'm back home where my back-ups reside.
