I have uninstalled an older version of ICQ. I triple checked that I did NOT, in the uninstall process, set it to delete the historical conversations (and anything else related to ICQ history). Then I downloaded and installed latest version of ICQ.
All my past logs of history conversations are gone. I checked 10 times through the entire Documents and Settings folder (yes entire one), also clicked every single contact with right mouse button, chose ''History'' option. Everything is gone and there were some extremely important details in the saved conversations within older version of ICQ.
I tried R-Undelete, Glary Utilities, Restoration, Avira Unerase, Recuva recovery softwares and nothing works. I must get my logs of history chats back. Please help.
Same question for PIDGIN messenger.
