    Windows Live Desktop

    When I originally installed Windows Live Desktop I was able to import all my
    emails from Outlook Express including those that were in Storage Folders. I
    had to reformat my hard drive, reinstall Windows XP and all my programs.
    When I installed Windows Live Desktop it obtained all my emails that were in
    my Hotmail account. However, none of the Storage Folder emails were
    recovered. I saved all the Storage Folder emails before reformatting the
    hard drive. In the previous version of Windlows Live Desktop I found all my
    emails in the Windows Live Mail folder. I can click on the file and Windows
    Live will open the file. How can I copy/move these files to a folder so that
    they will be displayed in Windlows Live Storage Folder?

    Re: Windows Live Desktop

    I gather that you saved a copy of your old Windows Live Mail Message Store rather than exporting your messages before reformatting your HDD.

    In such a case, you can either import your messages from your old Message Store, or simply drag the messages from it onto your WLMail interface.

    To import from an old WLMail Message Store: File->Import->Messages...->"Windows Live Mail"->"Next >" [button]->"Browse..." [button] to your old Windows Live Mail Message Store folder->...
