Hello,
first of all installation has not to do with folders.
Let me know the following so i can understand the issue and help:
1. you tried to move email folders to another destination (external drive), right?
2. how did you moved the files? did you copied all dbx files to new destination?
3. what do you mean you cannot find your folders? you cannot see them on outlook express or you cannot see the dbx files in the destination that you copied them?
The dbx files are still on original destination (that waere before you copy them)?

what do you mean "when I try to browse the folder in the setting" ?
When you try to browse the folder on outlook express? or in the tray icon menu?

Store folder is not suggested to be moved on external drives.
And that because external drives may change drive letter if removed and re-attached.

The reply address, is the address where the receivers will reply to your emails.
You should set there the email address that receiver of your emails will reply your email.
to check if it works, just right click on a Sent message (a message that you have sent or replied) and click "properties" then click on "Details"
You will see there that the reply address is the one that you have set.
In demo screenshot below, you see that i have my email address set to test@test.test and reply address to test2@test.test
