Backup doubts

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Emrys Davies, Mar 24, 2010.

    I have Win7 Home Premium 64 bit and WLM

    If I go to Start and open my Personal Folder I find 12 folders, one of which
    is AppData, which contains three folders namely Local, LocalLaw and Roaming.
    None of the contents of the latter three folders match my 'Storage Folders'
    files in WLM, which are stored in C:/Users\Emrys
    Davies\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail. Maybe the latter is
    hidden in my Personal Folder.

    I just need to be reassured that the 'Let Windows Choose' backup will
    include my 'Storage Folders' which are in my message store. Conor has
    already told me that it will, but I am dithering because of what I have
    read. Sorry Conor.

    If you are concerned that full computer backup will not copy out the appdata
    dir or the WLM message cache you can always export the totality of your
    emails from WLM to a USB pen drive backup.

    Can you just let the backup run once, then investigate to see exactly
    what was backed up? I assume there's a way to explore the backup to
    see what is in it.
