I'm forced to use Lync 2010 & Outlook 2010 for work some latest days. Everything works well until I need to find previous conversations, and I got this: cant find previous conversations in Lync 2010
Some try with Google and I got this tutorial by Microsoft for fix. But when I click on the link given in that tutorial for a patch I got this cant download patch from Microsoft
So I post this questions here to ask for help, If anyone know how to fix this problem, please do me a favor to say about how to fix it.

p/s: If it's a matter then I could ignore my lost conversations, I just need to save all my conversations from now on.

Still CAN NOT do this from Lync (find previous conversations) even when I've switched to
Windows 7 Ultimate + Outlook 2010 + Lync 2010
However, at least I can go to Outlook and search in Conversation folder to find something.

  • Lync messages history requires MS Exchange Server.

  • @dnbrv : of course I'm using Lync within my company Exchange server. The problem is Lync program on my PC can't do the "find prev conversation".

I don't know why, but after few months, finally I could do this (find previous conversations)! May be it's from many Window update I've installed.
Just add an answer to increase my accept rate.
