I read that Lightning stores calendar data in "storage.sdb" in the Thunderbird profile directory.
However, that file in my profile has a very old timestamp, and does not change when I add a calendar entry.
Furthermore, I deleted that file, and a new (smaller) one was created next time I ran Thunderbird, but my calendar entries are still there!
SO where is the calendar data really stored?

I right-clicked the calendar for its properties, and it gives this as the Location:
"moz-profile-calendar://"
- what does this mean?

(I'm running Thunderbird 3.0.1 and Lightning 1.0b1 in Ubuntu Jaunty)

Location changed from Lightning 0.9 to Lightning 1.0b1. Now storage.sdb contains only information about the Lightning version and is required for compatibility reasons. The events and tasks from local calendars is stored in calendar-data/local.sqlite. Information about calendars like location and settings are stored in prefs.js.

I'm having a similar problem, but I reinstalled Windows Vista and all my data is gone. It's in the Windows.old directory, but I don't know how to restore it. Any suggestions?
