Windows 7: wlMail 2011 Folder Missing

wlMail 2011 Folder Missing

Have Win 7 and WLMail 2011 and 200+ email folders ... 99.9%+ are displayed by WLMail, but one isn't.

I checked C:\Users\(my PC name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Storage Folders\Imported Folder\Local Folders\worldstart - thus the folder in question exists ... but it does not show in WLMail (all other folders are displayed).

The folder preceeding ....\worldstart is ....\word and is displayed with the right-caret (a closed >) indicating a sub-folder, but none shows (and there shouldn't be one). I suspect WLMail has gotten confused and thinks the worldstart folder is a subfolder of word.

Any fix suggestions?

Initially clicking on "caret"resulted in nothing.

Tried again just now and a subfolder of wnbc was displayed. Heartened by fact that subfolders were now being displayed I checked other folders with "carets" and found the folder (worldstart) as a sub of another folder.

So - bottom line - I have found my folder (and have changed it's location so it shows as a folder, not a sub) ... but still wonder if there's a way to rebuild the folder list (seems like OE6 did it by deleting the index.dbx file, then restarting - but I know the dbx files are 'passe').

Sorry for misleading you
