Windows 7: Yahoo complete messagehistory archive not found under username profile

Yahoo complete messagehistory archive not found under username profile

Hi Expert
Yahoo program was installed on D partition not C , and windows 7 64-bit 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 )

Yahoo! Messenger All Help | DOC85 - How to Copy Your Message Archive (Chat History)
Code:
  %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

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 ?

Thanks
