First of all: Thank you for Mozilla Backup: One step nearer to get rid of Windows mail systems. I have needed to restore my local mail folders several times during the last five years, caused by sudden Windows crashes - losing once a half-years' messages. For Outlook Express Express Assist has was used to make the trick, and it has fulfilled this job excellently. Now, because of heavy spam load I was looking for a programme that would learn to kill the spam at server, and found Thunderbird (0.3), that is a wonderful programme. With it I only need a backup programme, therefore I put high hopes with Mozilla Backup.

*But*

Trying to get Mozilla Backup create backup for Thunderbird doesn't what I want: instead a message is displayed

An error occurred while backing up some files. Either the disk is full or you don't have write permission. The program will exit.

OS is Windows2000, I have the Administrator's rights (being the sole user of this computer), and there is 1.5 GB free space on the disk. My browser has been Mozilla for years, now Firebird, which I love.

Has anyone experienced the same? The home site of Mozilla Backup does not give any help.
