First I change the path of the C:\Users\Valter\Documents to D:\Document\Windows (in Windows 7 Professional) and when I enter in the my Windows Live Mail, my account and emails gone. How do I recover that ?

Any idea ? I really need help with this guys. Thank you for your attention with this.


The mail is stored in you user folder (eg: 'C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail'). You moved them, so you'll need to update Live Mail with the new path.

  • In Windows Live Mail, press ALT to bring up the menu and select Tools, then Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab, then the Maintenance button.
  • Click the Store Folder button, Change it to the new path.

  • thanks dude. I restore the path to C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail, it seems to work, but I had two accounts on it, but imports just one, do you know why this happens ? – Valter Silva Dec 12 '11 at 9:56
