I have to install Thunderbird to a laptop. Previously it was installed on a desktop PC.

I have a backup of the data files (several accounts) and I'm wondering if there's anything I should watch out for. After I install Thunderbird on the laptop how am I going to point it to the right directory where each account's data are held?
