Is there any way to backup my accounts and settings.
I have 3 email accounts and it would be easier to simply restore the backup.

I'm using version 78.5.0

I found my profiles.
One is in the Local and the other is in the Roaming user folders.
Do I need to copy both or just one?
Also I'm assuming to restore the profile(s) I need to simply copy them back?

One is in the Local and the other is in the Roaming user folders.

You don't need the bits under Local. The actual user profile is under Roaming.
