Hi I really need to save/or archive my messages for longer than the 6 months on the Skype chat. Does anyone know how to do this? I would greatly appreciate any help in telling me how to do thus....
I have a lot of messages between myself and my girlfriend over the first 6 months of our relationship and I would dearly love to save them.....please help
If you are on a Windows computer, then you can do this:
Quit Skype. It's important that Skype is not running on your computer.
Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata%\skype and press Enter or the OK button. This will open a window with a Skype folder. Within this folder locate a subfolder with name corresponding to your Skype name. Open this folder. You will find there a file with name main.db. It may have just have a name “main” if your PC is setup to not show extensions for known file types but you will still see description “Data Base File” in the Type column. Copy this main.db file to any location on your computer, removable storage, like e.g. an USB flash drive or CD. You will now be able to see the whole old call history by restoring the main.db database file.
