    Finding "Live Mail" email data files.

    I need to reinstall Windows 10 on a duel booting computer, on separate drives and whilst I can transfer most of the personal data off the Win 10 drive to a new temp folder on the other drive and then back later to a newly installed clean version of Win 10 on the original drive, I cannot ascertain the various email data files (all of them). I have 4 separate email accounts in "live mail".

    I am using Wil since Windows 7. My current version is WLM 2012.
    I have never done this before, but I know you can "export" emails to a folder of your choice and later "import" back.

    Open WLM > File > Export emails > email messages > Microsoft Windows Live Mail > Next > select a folder...........
    You will have to take it from there as I have never used this method.

    Have a look at these tutorials
    This one is written when Win 7 is the current Windows OS. The procedures should be very similar, after all we are still talking about WLM.

    I forgot to mention that my version of win 10 has crashed beyond repair. I have now found a route into the back & beyond of my computer to find the data files. Thank you for help.
