Can I retrieve mail from Thunderbird on a failed Hard drive

I can access the hard drive using a caddy and I have found the mail folder in Thunderbird which contains the inbox, sent, trash, etc
I tried running Mozbackup but cant find a way to guide it to that folder.
Does anyone know another way.?
I cant  reinstall the OS (vista) without overwriting and losing all the files

If you COPY the mail folder on to another drive and change the default profile to point at this that should do it.
