Hello,
The datastore is located:

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\TechSmith\SnagIt\DataStore

Vista and Win7: C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Sn agIt\DataStore

You can also manually back up your datastore from with Snagit:
Backup the DataStore

1. In the Snagit Editor, click the Snagit Button and select Editor Options

2. Switch to Advanced and select Backup / Restore Automatically Stored Files...

3. Select Backup to create an archive of the Unsaved captures in your Library

4. Select a file name, which will have a .snagarchive extension and a location, such as Desktop or My Documents.

I hope this helps!
