Hi,

 

How can I move the skype chat history (main.db stored in C:\ ) to another location in E:\ and still see that history in a working Skype?

I prefer to store data (chat history) in another disk instead of C:\

Thanks.

Hi comsky :)

Apparently, this is possible by redirected the datapath of the Skype executable (Skype.exe). Follow the instructions in the thread below:
