Sync Skype chat history across Multiple Machines
Yesterday, I wanted to browse through the links saved in my skype chat done from another machine. As skype stores all its history locally and does not push it to cloud, it was not possible to retrieve chat history from another machine. After few hours of brainstorming and googling I got this idea to push chat history to cloud.
Here is the trick if you are using ubuntu as a primary OS-
1. Install Ubuntu One if it’s not already installed
You can do this simply by searching the Ubuntu one application from dashboard. After system pops up with option to install Ubuntu One-
2. Start syncing Skype history
Skype stores all your chat history locally in ~/.Skype folder. Navigate to this folder and then enable sync for this folder through Ubuntu one menu.
3. Enable download and sync on machine 2
After sync is complete, login to another machine and start ubuntu one. The .Skype folder will appear in the folders list of Ubuntu one. Check “Sync locally” option for the .Skype folder.
After download is complete, you can now access the chat history from any ubuntu machine!
