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,
