Thunderbird forgot my profile!

Today thunderbird forgot my mail profile.
I Launched thunderbird and was taken back to see my profile was gone!
i almost have 2.5 gigs of mail over the two years and the thought of losing them gave me a minor attack!

Rushed immediately to check my profiles folder under application data\thunderbird and with a sigh of relief found my mail data
was still intact.

Checked the profiles.ini to find no profiles listed there. after a bit of searching on the net, i created a new profile and voila,
had the following piece of info. in the profiles.ini

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=
Default=1

updated the path and the profile name to match that of my previous profile and there it was - heaved a sigh of relief -
my profile with mail and data all intact!
