I have used windows easy transfer to move files from a Windows 7 computer to my new one running Windows 8.1. Although my documents, photos etc have transferred, I cannot find my thunderbird address books, or e-mails. Where are these items stored/

I have moved my Thunderbird emails to a new PC recently using Mozbackup as in northumbia61's link. I found it easy and very successful.

Just look for your Thunderbird "Profile" folder usually somewhere in user data and copy it tp your new machine and set up a new Profile (Run\Thunderbird.exe -p)and point the folder location to where you installed the profile from your old machine. I personally put it in My Docs so it backs up with My docs on an automated daily backup.
