Having just reformatted my c drive, I have reinstalled skype but all my conversations have gone. Where are they stored so next time I can save them. I also did a back up first so if I know where to look I might be able to restore them.

You cannot record Skype phone conversations without the use of a third party recorder - there are many available such as SkypeRec - and they will store the conversations as MP3 or WAV files etc. So where they are in your system will depend on how you have set up your recorder.

I am sorry, I meant the written ones not the phone calls.

One can record Skype calls - look under Tools>Extras ...

In your Application Data folder, I think.

Thanks for that ... but as I said above the various options available are all third party applications - Pamela, PrettyMay etc.
