Windows 7: Windows Live Mail 2011 Doesn't Back Up All Email

Windows Live Mail 2011 Doesn't Back Up All Email

I briefly tried Windows Live Mail 2011 after having used the 2009 version since it was released. I had one problem, however. When I used the export email option to back up my email to an external hard drive, it didn't copy all of my email over. I selected the option of all folders, so what's going on here? This never happened with the 2009 version. I guess a work-around would be to copy the storage folder over to the external drive, but the export option should work. Any ideas? Thanks.

I used WLM 2009 and WLM 2011 and they function the same. What is the folder setup you are trying to export?

I'm trying to export the same folders in WLM 2011 that I did in WLM 2009. When I made the move to 2011, they were all there, but again, when doing the export in 2011, they're not all copied over to the external drive.
