Windows 7: Locating a folder in livemail on C drice !

Locating a folder in livemail on C drice !

I thought the slate was clean but tricky livemail seems to have made a back-door backup of my emails in folder 'all email' under heading 'Quick Views'. How do I find the location of this file in C drive and what other possible locations are there so that when I reload my emails again that I have a clean slate. Your comments are warmly welcome as its tough to get a response in this forum.

My guess is that Quick Views is not a duplicate but just another way to organize the email data. Under Layout/Folder Pane just uncheck Quick View to not use it at all. To create a clean slate just delete the contents of the "store folder". I'ts location on your c: drive can be identified within WLM by going to Options/Advanced/Maintenance/Store Folder.

When I downloaded livemail it defaulted to C drive to store emails. So I stored my emails in C drive. Then I went into options/advanced/maintanance/store folder and changed from C to E drive and specified a new folder called 'Windows livemail'. Then what livemail did was make a copy of the emails in C drive and transfer them across to E drive. Now I have double the emails located on two separate drives ! Then I went back to livemail to see where these emails would show up in the left margin. It turned out they showed up in 'quick views' and 'storage folders'. Then I deleted all my emails from C & E drive. Went back to livemail (left margin) showing emails in the following folders. Under 'Quick views' in 'all email' and under 'storage folders' - local folders in 'deleted items', 'drafts', 'inbox' & 'sent items'. So what I'm trying to say is that livemail has stored residual emails in locations I can't find, do you know where they might be ???
