At work, a colleague is struggling to get his PC up and running for a few days now. To add an insult to injury, he also lost some of his Microsoft Outlook back up emails.

Seeing what happened to him, it’s a good reminder that I shall back up my files and emails too.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird (, and I found a very nice tool to back up the emails (a.k.a profile). It’s called MozBackup.


I thought I should share this with others who use Thunderbird too.
