Everyone who wants to save stuff in your Skype conversations, back them up now
Yesterday when i went to lunch, my skype was as it always was. When I came back it looked different, the familiar white and blue now black and grey. And when it popped up saying someone had posted, it gave me the option to reply without opening the main program. Alright, not to bad. Kinda swanky.
I didn’t discover the downside until this evening, when I tried to look for something previously discussed and discovered i couldn’t search through individual conversations. Okay annoying, as that will lead to a lot of scroll work, but workable.
That’s when I discovered anything over a month old was gone. I went to %appdata% to restore previous version. It says there are no previous versions.
Two years of conversations. Of plotting and brainstorming. Of fun with friends and my getting to know some wonderful people. Its all gone, and as far as I can tell, NO way to get it back.
Back up your stuff now guys.
