In order to test some functionality on a web application I had to change the calendar date in future on my local machine.
In the while, I was using Skype and conversations were recording as of being on 8th of August (the date I experienced this). Then I return 'back from time' on current date. Well, from that time on Skype was behaving weird because it showed me conversations ordered by timespan ascending.
Well that is when you will got messed up :)
As Skype only allows you to delete all history conversation at once I had to search for a way to delete only those conversation that were 'in future' so Skype will show me last chat discussions on last row ;)
Searched around and found this solution.(it will require a little knowledge of SQL)
- Quit from Sype - required - otherwise you will have a sql error - database locked
- Go to C:\Users\PROFILE NAME\AppData\Roaming\Skype\SKYPE LOGIN ID
- OpenDatabase SqLite
- (for timestamp you could put the one obtained at 4) or if you want to check of an author use: author = 'authorId' ) authorId is skype Name
