My chat history is large main.db file.
I have scripts installed that are monitoring some of my folders, including the one with main.db file.
And since it is growing, I get constant wornings.
I don't want to delete chat history, and don't need another chat reader.
But I do need to move main.db to another location (folder) and still use it with Skype.
Is there a way to move chat history (maind.db) to totally another location (folder) and still see that history in a working Skype?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, it is.
Create a new folder on your drive. Lets say, the name of this folder is “Data” and you create it on drive C:.
Create now a new desktop shortcut with the following path:
“C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe” /datapath:”C:\Data” /removable
This is of course under this assumption, that Skype.exe is indeed located in the specified path. If not, then use just the correct path.
Start now Skype with this new shortcut and login with your Skype name. All Skype configuration data and chat history will now be stored in this new “C:\Data” folder. In order to get your old chat history into this folder, or more precisely, in the folder “C:\Data\your skype name”, move or copy the original main.db into this folder.
