    Yes, I was aware of what the message claimed. The difficulty with it was that I had shut down windows, not hibernated it and there never was any instance of hiberfil.sys on the system, including...
  2. Re: Cannot mount volume from File Browser or Disks application

    Hmm, don't understand your answer. How do you know Windows is hibernated? As I said in my o.p., last time I exited from Windows was via shutdown. However, since I know nothing, I tried booting to...

    It's clear that the ImportExportTools does not support import for IMAP Accounts. Perhaps it should be...

    Re: Thunderbird: Import: huh ?

    Yes. However, you make a good point - I hadn't noticed the new option "importexporttools" in the tools menu - I still used the simple "import" option. Having tried the new option I get this...

    Re: Can't browse "C-drive" under 12.04

    Thanks for this advice. Any idea why this was made so difficult to find in 12.04, or less easy to use than the approach of 11.10?

    Yes, I guess that is the reason - but I am usually so careful in making this sort of choice during software installation. This has kept my systems (Linux and Windows) relatively spam and malware...
