How to back up and restore contacts in Skype?

It’s a good idea to back up your Skype contacts even though the list is maintained at Skype’s central repository. Choose Contacts➪Advanced➪ Backup Contacts to File and select a location on your hard drive or USB flash drive to store the contact info. The file gets saved as a VCF file, which is a special format for exchanging contact info. If you’re curious, you can open up the VCF file with a text editor such as Notepad.
Restoring your contacts is just as simple. Choose Contacts➪Advanced➪ Restore Contacts from File, locate your backup file on your drive, and click OK.
