How do I restore the deleted chat history?

[ Edited ]

Hello guys, I guess there were plenty of such questions, but unfortunately I didn't find the answer for mine, so please don't mind me opening one more topic.

Some time ago I have deleted the chat history in skype with one person, but now I need it a lot in order to obtain some valuable information for me.

I heard that there is a way to view the old chats via text viewing programs, and the files that store that info are ".ddb" type.

 I didn't find any of such files, and I checked some others randomly, found nothing.Could you please tell me where exactly should I look?

 

PS One more question.Is chat history data binded to pc, or my skype account?I mean, if I  buy a new pc and install skype, old history data occures on my new HDD or not?

 

Thank you for your attention.

basically Skype histories are stored locally, or only in the computer where the conversation happened.  As far as I remember, there is no way at present to retrieve deleted chat messages.

Hi,

 

Primemover, it is possible to obtain information of IP addresses from the conversation that happened and was stored locally?
Thanks
