Recovering emails for Windows Live Mail
My computer has been returned to me after a crash which required Windows 7 being reinstalled. Most of my data was recovered, but not my emails apparently. However, I can see a new folder on the hard drive which looks like it relates to Live Mail and which looks like it was recovered too (it's not in my usual user folder and it's dated the day of the crash/recovery), it is called AppData/Local/Microsoft/WindowsMail and contains all the files that I'd expect to see (ie it looks a lot like the folder of the same name which is under my user name). Could this contain all my old emails and if so, how do I access them? I've tried copying the files to the folder under my user name and I've tried asking Live Mail to import messages, but it couldn't see any.
I've lost four years worth of emails and all my up to date contacts, I'd really like to recover them.

WLM won't see them since WLM uses a different folder called "Windows Live Mail" not "Windows Mail". The latter is a left-over from Vista's Windows Mail which Microsoft left out of Windows 7. However the tutorial thread discusses how to recreate Windows Mail on Windows 7 using that folder for those who wish to use the older, unsupported program on Windows 7.
