    Hi Folks,
    I recently had a HD failure where I had to wipe the drive and begin again. I use Carbonite for online backup and so far, it seems the items I designated for backup, were in fact, backed up. I have almost everything back the way it was before save for photos and Mail. What is the path that Mail data is stored?

    Did you set Carbonite to back up your email too? If so, I'd recommend contacting their support staff to see how to get it back.

    Or if it's an IMAP service, you should be able to just enter in your account settings and get them all back from the IMAP server.

    Yes, Carbonite backed up my e mail too, but their support dept has already closed for the night. All I really need is the path to where it's stored and I can copy the restored files to that location.
