After a reboot (Windows 7) Thunderbird was back to a fresh install state - no accounts.

My profile folder still exists and the prefs.js contains my personal and work account settings. How can I re-link my profile to restore my previous configuration?

Thank you for the link.

It sort of worked as e-mail etc came back but the calendar is blank but that is just a nuisance.

I had experienced a similar problem, lost calendar and older emails. Renaming my prefs-#.js to prefs.js fixed it all.

WHAT A STAR!!!

Thank you for such a simple fix to get calendar back. If we were on Reddit I would give Gold.
