So this was a question that was asked by my friend to me.
I won’t bore you with writing long post but lets stick to the point.
Depending you your operation system the path below will change
On Windows 7 which I am using they are stored in
C:\Users\[Current Windows Login Name]\AppData\Roaming\Skype\[Your Skype Name]\
Under the above directory you will find a file called main.db. That’s were they are store. Now this files is sort of encrypted, there are few applications that can read this file for you. I’ve listed a few at the end of my post. On Windows Vista and Windows XP the file path will be
C:\Documents and Settings\[Current Windows Login Name]\Application Data\Skype\[Your Skype Name]\
Ok so another question that I may be able to answer is that Like Yahoo, Skype won’t store messages on their servers. The only thing that they store is your Contact List. That data is really important to them as its important to you.
I hope this helps. Don’t forget to +1 this post if this answer your question.
