Hi Expert

Yahoo program was installed on D partition not C , and OS was installed on C partition
Before I formatted the C partition (windows 7 64 bit was installed) I backed up the whole profile (Computer > Local Disk ( C : ) > Users > allentodd ) for the username : allentodd to my external hdd
Means I have already backed up my yahoo profile beside other profiles (when I backed up the whole profile for allentodd I did not check yahoo profile specifically

I could not post the URL for the code below because I am not authorized , but you can use the phrase below at google

How to Copy Your Message Archive (Chat History)

Code: [ Select ]
%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\

First question I believe the above quote has a typo it should be :

%AppDataLocal%\VirtualStroe not %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore,,,,Can someone confirm that

Second question
After that I formatted the C partition and I installed a fresh copy of windows 7 64 bit and I did create the same username which was (allentodd)
Now the when I tried to restore the yahoo profile that I have already backed up to my external hdd I could not find any Yahoo folder under this path :

allentodd\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\

And I could not any yahoo folder under the path below as well

allentodd\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\

Why this is happening ? Is this because yahoo was not installed on the C drive initially ?

That might be the cause of your problem. You may have to alter the directory paths to point to your message history's new location(s).
