» Decode Yahoo Messenger Archive

Step 1 - Upload Archive

Your archives are encrypted and stored as .dat files on your own computer in:
  • C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\urYahooID\Archive\Messages
or if you are using Windows Vista:
  • C:\Users\WindowsUsername\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\urYahoo!ID


  • Decodes the message archive without logging in.
  • No passwords required.
  • Decodes normal conversation messages, private messages, conferences, and SMS/Mobile Messages , complete with time stamps
  • Up to 20 times faster than the Yahoo! Messenger internal viewer.
