    You mail folder is usually located in: C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail

    To change its location
    • Click on File > Options > Mail
    • Down in the "Advanced tab, you shall have the "Maintenance and Troubleshooting"section
    • Click on the "Maintenance" button and it shall open a new window
    • Click on the "Store folder" button.

    • In the new menu displaying the actual location of the mail folder, click on the "Change" button and replace the path by the one of your choice.
    • Save your changes using the OK button.
