How do I backup just Windows Mail

The messages are located as individual eml files under a directory tree the
matches the local folder tree. The location can be found via Tools |
Options | Advanced | Maintenance | Store folder The default location is
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\. You need to show
hidden files to see it. You only need now to backup the eml files, as the
database will change and is not compatible with versions future to beta 2.

To restore the messages drag the eml files back into an OE or WinMail
folder.

You have to enable showing hidden files and folders. If you don't have
access then you'll have to boot as Administrator. If you still don't get
access, then you'll have to boot to safe mode as Admin.
