Retrieving Thunderbird Mail

o.k. I need someone who knows plently about thunderbird here (or has just had the same problem as me) recently my windows install on my main PC became corrupted. Windows has since been re-installed on another drive as the original had an error on which refused to clear. Because of this I am having to re-install all of my programs from scratch. I use thunderbird for my e-mail and have re-installed this however I do not know how to get my e-mails back, I have my original drive and thunderbird files intact but where is my mail?
