I'm looking for a tutorial somewhere that explains how to find the data file, similar to Outlooks .pst file. However, I'm looking for a tutorial on how to pull it from a hard drive thats in a dock, then port it to a new computer, transfering contacts and everything. 

 

Coming from a " Oh no, my hard drive is so bad that it no longer boots the os, but all the files are still retreivable. "

 

Thanks

I Think I just solved the issue, from what I read you can simply copy the profile to the other computer and you're done. I've always had to retreieve the pst file since everyone used outlook; but I have more customers and family members using thunderbird and wanted to know before anything bad ever happened.
