Yahoo Messages archives are always saved in the compute. So, if you have formatted the HDD or installed the Yahoo messenger in some another computer then your message archives are lost.

How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

I can't read offline and any messages on screen, and can't send messages too.


Dear Friend,

Please download latest version of Yahoo Messenger....... and use following instructions -

Click the Messenger menu in Messenger.
  1. Select Preferences.
  2. Click the Archive category.
  3. Check the Enable Archiving option. Enable each item that you want to archive. If you'd like to automatically delete archives after a certain number of days, place a check in the box next to Automatically Delete Files Older Than and enter a number.
  4. Click OK at the bottom of the window.
Please Note: Uncheck the Enable Archiving option if you'd like to disable Archiving.
To view your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the archive folder you want to review.
To delete your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the Messages folder and then click the X button if you want to delete your complete Message Archive or select the desired folder and then click X to selectively delete.
A few things to remember:
  • Under the Message menu, you can reply, save, and print messages, as well as view your archiving preferences.
  • Under the Edit menu, you can copy messages to your clipboard or delete messages.
  • Under the View menu, you can enable timestamps.
Please Note: Archives (.dat files located on your system) are encrypted and can only be viewed by the Yahoo! ID that created them. These archives are stored locally on your system, so the conversations held on that specific computer are only accessible from that computer. Once archives are deleted, they're gone, and cannot be retrieved.

My yahoo id is latha2655@yahoo.com. I need to access a "yahoo messenger chat" I had with a friend on 19th, 21st, 22nd and 24th of April 2008. I did not know how to save it. Can you please help...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue

First of all i would like to inform you that chat conversations are not saved on the ayhho server. In case you have enabled archives then the messages would get saved on your computer.
To check the same follow the below steps:
Go to messenger ...preferences... archives, enable this feature, click okay.
To save future messages, mark "yes, save all of my messages", click "apply" and "ok".
The messages are usually saved at the below path:
C\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

In case the above fails you may give a try at using the Yahoo Messenger Chat Recovery Tool
http://www.download3000.com/download_26680.html

If both the above fail then there is hardly a chance that the chat history could be retrieved

Feel free to ask in case you have any queries

If the information i shared above was useful please do rate the solution as Fixya.

To read archived messages right-click the user ID, click message archive.

Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe


·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.

TO INSTALL:

CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

Click the link below to download Yahoo Messenger

http://messenger.yahoo.com/webmessengerp…


Click the "Download Now" button.

Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.

COPY MESSAGE ARCHIVE

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

ENABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S

I need to retrieve my chat archives from yahoo mail.


Im sorry to say but, you cant retrieve your chat archives from yahoo mail. but you can only retrieve it in Yahoo Messenger.

In order to set the settings in Yahoo Messenger so that you can retrieve the chat archives for future reference,

First..
go to messenger > preferences > Archive > and choose Yes, save all of my messages.

This sets your yahoo messenger application to save all your chat messages even when you logout or close the application.

If you want to retrieve your chat archives, click the View Archive button


:) well i hope this solves your problem..
