I have WhatsApp, Viber and WeChat installed on my Bluestacks, and it's working fine. I am running Windows 8 but for some reason, I have to switch to Windows 8.1 soon. How can I save my chat histories and contacts as I will lose Bluestacks once I reinstall Windows and will have to install Bluestacks again?

To save all your files, the SDcard and ROOT files have to be saved to another location.

The exact location is as follows: C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\Android or C:\Program Data\BlueStacks\

Copy the files to another location then re-install Windows and Bluestacks. Close all the services from Bluestacks and copy the files copied earlier to the same location and that's it. When started, Bluestacks will use them.
