Hi, I just did a new installation of Linux on my machine, and I neglected to export my calendar data before I reinstalled. My old data is preserved, but not in an importable format. Is there any way to copy my old calendar data to my new profile? Which files do I need? I have Googled and followed the instructions on this page http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Thunderbird#Lightning_add-on but they didn't work. Same for my address book. Followed these instructions but no luck: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_address_books_between_profiles. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would just copy the entire Thunderbird profile folder from old to new system to keep messages, contacts, calendars, extensions, settings, and everything else.

Return to Calendar
