Every time Skype upgrades or updates automatically, you will be surprise that you can't find your messages and chat history. It is sometimes hard to think that you lost all your old messages and chat history and become hopeless for everything. This has been my problem before as I have a lot of important messages stored on my Skype account. I have researched in Google and came up with my own style in recovering deleted Skype messages and chat history.

Run Command


Selecting Skype Name

Here is a simple solution to bring back the deleted messages. (Note: You may be trying to jump back to some certain months to be able to try recover chat history but to no avail.)

1. Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard, then press R to bring up the Run window.

2. Type %appdata%\Skype into the Run window and press Enter. Open the folder named after your Skype Name.

3. Find the main.db file in the folder, this file is your chat history.

> Click on Properties

> Click on the Previous versions tab

> Highlight the Older version

> Click on Restore.



Click Previous Version


Following the simple procedures above will save your day from thinking how to recover anything you lost from your Skype. Hope it helps!
