Back up Thunderbird mail folder

I would like to back up my thunderbird mail folder (i.e. c:\user\NAME\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\etc. ) to jottacloud.

As far as I can understand this:

Men Jotta vil ikke finne noen filer der, helt sikkert fordi %AppData% er eksludert slik det står i FAQen.

it is not recommended to backup %AppData% to Jottacloud, although the reply:

Om du har lagt til feks %AppData%\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\ så kan du markere denne mappen i Jotta klienten og trykke på "Utelat" knappen. Den gui'en som åpnes da har en knapp "ett nivå opp". Trykk på denne helt til du kommer til mappen over appdata og der kan du fjerne eksluderingen.

seems to say you can do it. What is the problem with %AppData%? How could I back up my mail folder?

Thank you for your thoughts -

  • Hi Steve

    Add the folder to backup as usual. Then select the folder in the list, and hit the "Exlude" button. You will have to remove any "ticks" in the checkbox in front of the folder name, and also do the same for any exluded folders above the folder in question.

    We do not recommend that you include these folders in Backup. If you choose to include them, you do so at your own risk. It might impact system performance, network traffic and stability of the backup.
