    I copied all the files on my "C" drive to a second drive. Now, if I want to "restore " my Windows Live mail, where is it files or stored?
    Regards

    Chuck Billow

    Edit:
    I found where the mail is stored, but it seems to have several "boxes" for the mail, when I was only using one address.
    How can I tell what/which to import in so as to not end up with a bunch OD duplicates?

    Regards,

    You should probably restore everything under the WLM folder. A screenshot of your "several boxes" may give us a better idea about it.

    For future reference you should consider using the approach in How to Backup Windows Live Mail Accounts, Contacts and Messages - Windows Live.

    Never physically copy files in explorer from one folder to another when attempting to restore in Windows Mail.
    I think you will find it easier to "Import" all your email messages and email folders.
