Can't export messages from Windows Mail in safe mode

My computer is unstable at present and will only run in safemode.

I am intending to do a repair install and as part of backing things up I want to export my mail to a USB stick.

When I choose Export in WM, the option to browse a location to store the messages is grayed out and I can't type a location into the box.
I therefore can't continue with the export.

Any ideas why?

As an alternative, can I just take a copy of C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
as my backup?

Thanks in advance

This does not seem to work in SAFE MODE.

I cannot export, nor can I access my Users.. \Appdata\ folder as it appears to be hidden and won't let me see it while in safe mode.

Is there an alternative way to backup my email messages or to access that folder while in safe mode?
