Re: Child Abuse

Hi, TG31, and welcome to the Community,


Chat history files are "housed" on the computer where the IM chat took place.  If the chat could have continued or occurred on a second computer, there is a possibility that while the chat history may have been deleted from one computer, the chat may have syncronized with the other computer and still be intact.  You could try a call and chat logging third-party add-on to Skype such as NirSoft to see if it captured the conversation. 


The rule is that when chat history is deleted -- it's gone.


Best regards,
