Moving folders

I have had to reload everything on my laptop but before doing so I exported all my saved emails.

After restoring the system I restored my Live mail Account and then imported all my emails and email filders.

The imported emails, inside their respective folders are shown at the bottom of the folder list as sub folders of sub folders of....

How can I move the imported folders up so that thet appear as folders alongside Inbox, Draft, Sent etc?

It works just like ordinary Windows folders. Just cut and paste them to where you want them to be.

I found a somewhat slower work-around.

I set up new empty folders with the names I required, in the position I required and then cut and pasted the emails from the old folders to the new folders before deleting the old folders

Storage folders

I already did that. The problem remains that if I try to move or copy a message to the storage folders, The true folders remain at the bottom of the list containing the false folders. It then becomes confusing as which folder to use. I am using the latest Intel i7 processor and 64 bit Windows 8.1
