Can not access Eudora Old Attachments in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a Windows 7 computer and moved my Eudora email client program successfully from my old Windows XP computer.  The problem is that Eudora looks for all my attachements to be in:

    c:\documents and settings\dave\application data\qualcomm\eudora\attach

    I built subfolders under "c:\users\dave\app data" folder and copied my attachments there but Eudora still would not search there.

    I realize that this is more a Eudora problem than a Windows 7 problem but wanted to know if you have any workarounds for this.

  • It seems that it is by design of the application. You may refer the following discussion.

    Will Work on Windows 7 - Eudora Forums

    Actually Windows 7 have junctions for this kind of compatibility issues. You will see these junctions in the folder %userprofile% if you configure to display the hidden components and system components. However I suspect that the application does not search folder by the variable %userprofile% but directly search the folder “Documents and Settings” which does not exist in Winodws7 anymore.

    You can try to make a junction yourself in C drive. Please refer:


    The command should be:

    mklink /j "Documents and Settings" c:\users

    If it does not work, please contact the support of the application for more information.
