What is the best way to copy the 700 lots of e-mail files to a new computer?

I'm moving my wife and an old (Thunderbird, Win XP) computer to a new computer (Thunderbird Win 7). It has about 700 local folders with thousands of emails in them. What is the best way to copy to the new computer?


The easiest is just to copy the whole profile.

Menu help > troubleshooting information

Close Thunderbird

In windows Explorer, select all and copy.
just stick on a thumb or other portable media to read/write (not the CD or the DVD)

on the new Machine to repeat the troubleshooting and close the steps to get the current profile folder

This time all the portable media stick in the profile to replace what is there

Open Thunderbird, your additions of e-mail contacts does it all

  • best way to copy backups time machine on another disk

    From an article by Apple (here), it seems that the best way to copy a TM backup (since one external hard drive to another) is drag-and - drop in the Finder. The CCC does not (and not only Mac backup Guru)-due to types of file owner by Apple. My record is about 1.6 to. The Finder is still the best method to use?  TX

    Yes, in accordance with article. TBS 1.6 will take much time since you will be transferred via LAN. I suggest you use Ethernet. The 2011 model is expected to support Firewire. If the other computer also supports Firewire, then use it. If she supports Thunderbolt, then get the adapter from Apple. It will probably take more than 2.5 days.

  • What is a "device i/o error. (0x8007045D) concerning the transfer to an external hard drive to my new computer?

    I backed up the files from my old computer Visa on a 1 TB hard drive.  I now need these files on my new computer.  I have a Mac with Parallels (virtual Windows 7) running on it.  I get the above error when you try to copy the files on the Mac or the side of Windows, Mac.  What is the solution to do this, to be able to copy the files?  Thank you!


    Try running chkdsk on the external hard drive to check if there are errors.

    1. Click Start, type cmd in the start search box, right-click cmd.exe in the list programs and then click Run as administrator.

    2. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click on continue.

    3. at a command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:

    CHKDSK X: /R

    Note in this command, x is a placeholder that represents the drive letter of the volume you want to check.

    4. press y when you are prompted to check the drive the next time the system restarts.

    5. close all applications and restart the computer. Note When you restart, Windows checks the drive for errors, and then Windows starts.

    6. after that restart the computer check if you are able to move files on your hard drive.


    Check a drive for errors


    Important: when running chkdsk on the drive hard if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost

    Almost all recent Macs I've seen have a Line In port which can either accept a stereo 3.5 mm to RCA, stereo input analog line or a Mini-TosLink digital connection for S/PDIF (2 channels).  If you need more audio input or need to enter that is not as intensive machine - you will need to invest in an audio interface.

  • What is the difference between 'place' and 'add files to download' in Muse CC?

    Hey guys... What is the difference between 'place' and 'add files to download' in Muse CC?


    You place the images to display on your site.

    You add files to download and make them available for download by visitors to your site.

    For example, you can add a PDF document, a Word document or whatever you want. These files are not displayable on your site, but you can link with the Hyperlink command to a button to make them available for download by visitors to your site.

  • With the help of a backup on an external hard drive to transfer files to a new computer.

    I recently got a new computer and I need to transfer my files via my new computer. Both computers running Windows 7. I have an external hard drive that has all my files from my old computer on it. I went into the control panel configuration, then system and security, and then in the backup and restore. I then clicked on "select another backup to restore files from" and looked for my external drive. I made sure that it was connected and up-to-date as well. However, he never showed up.

    I would like to manually just transfer the files, but it seems as if there are readers split on this computer for 'BONES' and 'DATA '. For this reason, I'm not sure which car I'd put even files on.

    How can I transfer these files?


    I understand that you are having problems with the restoration of the backup files of the external hard drive. Correct me if I misunderstood the question.

    (1) what is the version of Windows 7 is installed on your computer?

    (2) have you made changes on the computer before this problem?

    (3) you receive an error message when you try to restore?

    I suggest you to consult and follow the steps in the links and check if the problem persists.

  • What is the best way to copy a large poster and print it?

    I have Illustrator CS2.

    I do not believe that the scanners large format are flat, if I'm wrong. In my view, they have a mobile head that scans the original bottle then made up the data with the software.

    It is not cheap, if the original can be easily damage they'll probably damage it unless you make sure that beforehand what they know about it
    and that they accept that they can scan without damaging it.

    Photography is a good solution if you know how the art of light and you use a long distance goal.

    The reason is shooting with a normal or wide-angle will give an effect of stretching the edges especially bandwidth due to the proximity of the camera to subject distance. The lens and the longer distance will accomplish the same capture without you stretching effect.

    Now, if you really have a service experience work fine arts or large commercial then scanning might be the way of.

    In both cases, I don't think you want to vectorize the art.

  • What is the best way to copy a static variable of C in LabVIEW?

    As an interesting project / fun, I'm trying to implement the bcrypt algorithm in some native G, without using libraries (for example, no link DLL, all of the native code G). Everything is going well so far, with the exception of a minor roadblock I ran into. The bcrypt algorithm involves initialization of a state variable with a range of 4 x 256 of hex codes derived the decimals of pi. In C code, it looks like:

    unsigned int BF_init_state = {}
    Initial state of the line 1s
    }, {
    Initial state of the line 2 S
    }, {
    Initial state of the 3 S-line
    }, {
    Initial state of the line 4S
    }, {
    State initial P goes here

    I know that this should be in favour of some sort of import JSON, or perhaps directly via the menu data operations, but I'm not 100% sure on the best way to do it. Any ideas?

    I truncated lines, so if you are interested in getting the complete code, see crypt_blowfish.c on GitHub.

    This will make only a row/column at a time, but I think that's what you're looking for.

    Use disk cloning software.

    The safest way is to use an external hard drive enclosure to maintain the new disc during the cloning operation.  These come with interfaces USB or e-SATA to IDE or SATA interfaces for the drive and the computer.  Be sure to get the correct type.  If you have an available internal drive Bay, you can put the new drive it for the cloning operation, but do NOT restart with two connected drives.  After everything was settled down, you can mount the old disk of 60 GB inside, format and use it for storage of backup.

    Cloning (copy to disc) software may have been bundled with your new drive or may be accessed free of charge from the manufacturer of the new command.

    Otherwise, here are a few apps cloning that I have used myself or have been recommended by members of the community:

    I've heard some people complain that iTunes game, so I don't know if I want to go this route. iTunes will let you not only move your files from your iPhone. I use a program like AnyTrans but it do not put my side stars everywhere. Should I just export the iTunes library to Airdrop or connect my two computers via the USB port? If I do it this way it will sync on both computers then? Apple seems to have made this much more complicated, then it must be, any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • What is the best way to send personalized mass emails using Mac Mail?

    Attempts to send mass emails (in bulk) to a custom list of customers (less than 100) with a greeting / salutation. What is the simplest and cheapest way to do it?

    The App store has a few options, but not one with a qualification or a review. Online searches are not very convincing.

    Apple is usually easy to use and easy with these small details, but it is a nightmare, and I don't see why it should be so complicated (although I'm still hoping there is an easy work around or something, outside writing each message individually).

    Any help is very appreciated!

    In all honesty I suggest that you find a good online service to do it for you...


    Or one of the many others.

    These services have the ability to manage the e-mail in bulk. E-mail servers will block your messages if you seem to be spamming, there are a lot of issues to be addressed (addresses failed, bouncing mail, management of requests to subscribe / unsubscribe...). I suspect it's more trouble should manage it all yourself.

  • What determines the maximum size of a data file store?

    I have two SAN devices that serve as warehouses of data for virtual machines.  When you look in the view of data warehouses, the Configuration tab, selection of a host (although a data store is selected in the tree view in the left pane), then selcting properties for this data store.

    On a data store the total capacity is 600 GB, VMFS3.33, Max File Size 256 & Block Size 1 MB

    On the other data store the total capacity is 1.42 to, VMFS3.46, Maximum File Size 1024 GB, & block size 4 MB

    Of course, I understand that the amount of free space in a data store can limit the size a file size may be, but I wonder what are the other factors.

    It is the block size when you format first. If you need more large file size the only way again is to reformat. http://KB.VMware.com/kb/1003565
