remove folder created by MS q270670 art.

By krmincin ·
According the instructions in this article, I created a folder to make a snapshot backup of my Outlook Express inbox. What's now happening is this folder is duplicating my inbox. I want to remove the folder without deleting messages from my inbox. How do I do that?

PS: I did remove the folder and noticed all my inbox messages were gone. I forget how I restored them, but I did).

Sounds like you changed the location of the default folder for OE messages.

I looked through my OE 6 options, and did not see anywhere to change the folder used.

If you create a new account, and import your old account from the back-up folder,then delete the old account, you should be using a "new" folder for your email, and should be able to safely delete the old account folder and the backup folder.
