Hi Anny,

Your Thunderbird profile folder — which contains contains things like messages, contacts and passwords — was previously located in the following folder. This is the folder you should be looking for under the Windows.oldfolder.C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<random string>.default\You may need to first show hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer to locate it.

Be sure to copy it to a safe location as quickly as possible. The files might be deleted after 28 days since the upgrade was performed.

The Mail subfolder of the profile folder contains your messages and other data.
