    exporting emails from windows live mail

    I have previously used the export emails wizard in windows live mail to back up emails onto an external hard drive. I tried to do this again and all it exports are some of the folders and one or two random emails. Can anyone help?

    Hello crb250,

    I find that it works best when you export into a "New Folder" on your desktop first, then move the "New Folder" to the external hard drive.
