thanks, but as my initial question stated, i can backup with with no issue. the problem is the chat conversation files backed up to my pc are unreadable in english and there is no option to select to rectify this. the Iphone does not have this issue when backing up as one can incorporate itunes. apparently android phones have this issue. is there any solution for this short of having to switch to an iphone?

Hey there,

I found this site which could be of use, but besides that I haven't got a better answer for you.

If not I read somewhere that:

All WeChat messages are encrypted on PC. Only WeChat on the mobile phone with correct authorisation can support message important.

Hope that helps
