Windows 7: Windows 7 import only gets one email in WLM

Windows 7 import only gets one email in WLM

Hello all!

I am trying to import the settings as backed up prior to reinstall of windows 32 bit over windows 64 bit. I have the iaf files for the accounts, I have the mail folders setup. When I try to import, the only thing I see in the storage folders are 1 email a piece. I don't see any inboxes just deleted message folder (with one message inside). Any help is much appreciated.

When we saved over 64 bit, it saved old settings to c: windows.old. So maybe I can access old data if needed there.

This is in relation to another post of mine where I have written over a windows 7 64 bit OS with a 32 bit OS and it stored the data I needed to get in a windows.old folder. I have been able with much trial and error to import the emails over and correct the folders so they were the same as they were in WLM. I also was able to get the contact list over and it seems to be working like a charm. I have migrated to Thunderbird for those who are interested, as I have loved its use for years.
