Windows 7: Hard Time Moving email from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail

Hard Time Moving email from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail

I'm sure this has been answered but I cant seem to locate it. Bought a new computer with Windows 7. Followed other recommendations and copied all email from my old computer (outlook express) to flash drive. Opened Windows Live Mail and went to File/Import/Message - Choose Microsoft Outlook 6 as format to import email from. Choose the file on the desktop that I had created and filled with the emails from the flash drive. Selected "all folders". It then imported all the various folders and emails from the desktop folder. Got the message that my folders were imported in Outlook 6 format. Clicked finished. Now comes the weird part. When I go to Windows Live, I cant find the folders anywhere. All of the Storage Folders are empty. Any idea where they are?

Thanks.

I THINK that there may be a tree, with little arrows on the left of the folders. I think if you click on them the tree will expand and show your folders. I did say I think, not really sure.
