So i'm trying to move a bunch of sub folders and their contents from one email to another. It was going fine then just stopped and it seems that thunderbird won't move any further information over. How can i work around this?

What type of accounts (POP, IMAP or "Local Folders") were you copying them between?
If one of them was a IMAP account, was it a Gmail account? The reason I'm asking is they have a undocumented hourly and daily bandwidth limit.
Have you tried copying it in smaller chunks?

Both are imap accounts. And one is gmail. The main folders on my computer are maxing at 166mb for each account (gmail, other email, and local) despite having half a terabyte free on the hard drive. I have been trying t do it one folder of a few dozen emails at a time

Once you reach the bandwidth limit gmail starts lying / silently failing. How much free space you have on the hard drive is irrelevant.

The undocumented bandwidth limit effects any email client. The limit is higher and documented for g suite accounts (commercial gmail). See https://support.google.com/a/answer/107 ... opic=28609 and https://support.google.com/a/answer/166852?hl=en
