Calling all those expert in Thunderbirds - I just did a routine backup
via MozBackup and noticed that the size of it is now 7.5 Gigabytes. This
is mostly in archived folders which I do need to use now and then.
Does anyone know if there is a maximum working size for TB? My husband
uses an old Outlook programme (which works perfectly well for him) which
fell over at 2GB. I seem to remember that Turnpike fell over around 4GB.
Also, I have backups going back years. Outlook is horrible, but
retrieving old stuff is easy, you just open an old pst file. I've no
idea how you get into an old TB backup easily - I know it's in plain
text mbx format but that's a pain to winnow through. Does anyone know
how best to retrieve an inadvertently deleted email from one of these?
I just know that one of these days it will all collapse...
