All emails from Local folders not showing

Hi. I just upgraded to 9 from 6 client. I had my local folders filled with old emails. Now the folders do show, but only the main folder title. No subfolders and the main folders are completely empty. Is there a trick to recover those local folder emails? I looked in the forum but haven’t found an easy way to retrieve them. Please help, those folders had 8 years of old emails that I need.

I’m sorry for my poor English, as it is not my native language

Are the Local Folders not visible at all? If not, you can enable them by selecting Menu > Settings > General > General > Show Local Folders. Click on Save & Close to save the setting.

The main local folders are visible, with no content at all. I had a lot of subfolders and obviously a lot of emails in them. I don’t know if I have an old backup from where I could retirve them, after all, they are all old emails, nothing new or updated. Can I retrieve ony the local folders part of an old backup, maybe?
