I just went to :

C:\Users\Christopher\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Storage Folders (1)

The folders are there, but they're empty..

All thats under
C:\Users\Christopher\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Storage Folders

is deleted mail, sent mail, for newsgroups and all of that

Did this ever get resolved? I have the same issue, except that I do have a backup of the emails that disappeared. Last night I re-imported them into Windows Live Mail and this morning they were gone again!!! This is only happening with Storage folders. I don't have time to chase this down. If a solution hasn't been identified, I'll move to a Mozilla product.

Hey Logie,

Nope, using Outlook 2003 now... But it has issues too lol, because I have 4 accounts in OL, if I get an email from my old AOL address if I try to reply or forward it wants to send from that AOL address not my Yahoo mail Outlook 2007 resolved this issue but its 130 something dollars

Sorry to hear that Micro$oft wants to dig deeper into your pockets in order to fix their bug. What a business model!!!

Have you tried a repair of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features? Highlight WLE, click on "uninstall/remove", choose repair in next window. All installed components of the Essentials pack will be repaired, including Mail.
