Chat history older than 3 months - is this possible?

I would like to view my chat history with another Skype user but which is older than 3 months. Is it possible to find such a chat, please? 

 

Thank you in advance!

download SkypeLogView

nirsoft.net/utils/skype_log_view.html

 

and open the main.db file with it

C:\Users\Tamim\AppData\Roaming\Skype\tamim\main.db

 

can you see the history?

 

you can also try to open the main.corrupt or main.iscorrupt (if any) with SkypeLogView.

Regards,
Tamim

I have the same problem. Only 3 months logged. I tried SkypeLogViewer to no avail. Still only last 3 months can be accessed. Is there a way to see past that or those messages are lost forever ?

You can only view messages that are saved on this computer on which you have used Skype. If the old messages are no longer saved on your computer then they are lost.
