Finally I moved the copying job from the Dell Vostro which kept over heating to the newer Dell Precision and the files copied over fine and that is done now.
I am now focusing on making a copy of the files on my laptops for a year end back up. I did not actually use a desktop computer at home this past year.

I am working with old email storage on a network drive and using my Dell Vostro to copy the files to a 64GB USB key. These are emails from between 1996 and 2010.

I canceled an order for a brand new Mac Mini and am trying to find a used Mac to get my email storage more portable.

My old 2006 eMac computer is broken and the monitor seem to be the broken part. The computer will still boot up. With a little direction and encouragement from my brother, I logged into the Apple eMac computer remotely over my home LAN from an Ubuntu Studio laptop. I am now copying the Library/Mail files off to a network drive. I have done this logging in remotely to a computer with a dead screen, once before for a friend whose computer was broken. A Linux computer is a good option for logging in remotely. Then I simply copy files off the hard drive to a network drive.
Tomorrow I pick up a brand new Mac Mini from the local Apple Store and bring it home and try to load the old emails into the new machine. I then may try to export those old 1995 to 2010 emails to Thunderbird.
