    Hi, I had to get a new Macbook Pro since my old one died completely. I have TM backups and instead of restoring from a backup, I did a restore on another computer, copied the files I wanted and started clean on the new computer (the old one had TONS of crap on it). Everything is working but I don't know where the mail folders I stored locally were kept on the old HD? I have some program licenses I need in those folders. Any help is appreciated.

    Thx

    Which file in there? It looks like a lot of language packs. Nothing with size.

    Thx

    Okay that makes sense why I can't see anything. Hmm..

    Ok. Sorry. in 10.7.3 my library is no longer hidden.

    Click on the finder toolbar and while holding down the option key click on go > library.

    I'm able to see the library to begin with. There is nothing of MB in my Mail folder.

    Thanks anyway.

    I mean there are still there, but they are hidden.
    Open the terminal and browse your user folder library and inside mail there will be a folder v2, inside it are all your emails.

    To navigate use 'ls' to list and 'cd' to change directories.

    ls
    cd library
    cd mail
    cd v2
    ls
