So nine months after i asked the original question about being able to separately backup Windows Live Mail there still is nothing available. Babies are made in the same amount of time and they are much more complicated. I have had a hard drive failure since I originally made the request. I was unable to restore my LIVE mail properly.
IF you can tell me what directories etc that has to be backed up I really would appreciate it as yet I am unable to find this info myself and I don't want to lose my saved LIVE email info again..
