#10 Cleaning up mozilla profile

I have just tried to clean my mozilla profile using Mozilla Backup (Win 98). I've used Netscape since 1995, migrating to Mozilla in 2000. Meanwhile, the profile is clutterd a little bit. So I backed it up (hoping that only the necessery data is stored), manually removed the old profile (moved it to a different directory) and wanted to restore the profile. After manually removing the old profile, it wasn't possible to restore the backed up data with Mozilla Backup.

Is there anything wrong, or have I missunderstood something?
