How do I backup my configuration and chat history?

To backup your Skype for Windows configuration and history files, please go to "C:\Documents
and Settings\your_windows_username\Application Data\Skype\" and copy this directory
somewhere safe (burn to CD, etc.)

Copy the files back to that location to restore your date.

Note: Your contact list is stored on our servers and will not be lost as long as you log always login
with the same username. Chat histories and other data are not kept on our servers.
