Restoring unsaved msn chat logs?

Hi,
I was wondering if its possible to restore unsaved msn chat logs. Basically i had a conversation with my friend and she says she said one thing and i say she said another and it kinda needs to be cleared up. unfortunately neither of us saved our chat logs for msn.

i was just wondering if there is anyway to restore them from the computer disk? The reason i ask is that i heard it was possible but cant find anyway to do it, i tried to use a program called Pandora Recovery but that seemed to only find pictures and rubbish like that.

I was also thinking that the cops can always get info off comps from pervs and the sort so surely there must be a way of getting a similar program for home use.

I only need to use it once so a demo would be grand but unfortunately i have no credit card or access to one so paying for a program is impossible.

I really hope you can help because this would clear up the argument right away.

Thanks,
MM

ps: i am not good with computers so if i dont get what your saying at times sorry.

if you activated the save history option it will be here
C:/
my documents
my received files
folder with your account's name
it will be stored there as .xml files

I would imagine if you never saved them while using MSN there would be nothing to restore.

Forget the arguement and trying to prove yourself right.

"lol you sort of answered every question besides the one i asked :P" then you went on to say "unfortunately neither of us saved our chat logs for msn"

I answered by saying "If you didn't SAVE your History then here is how to do it for future reference" - the emphasis being on "IF YOU DIDN'T SAVE" - then to settle any future disputes you might have, here's how to do it !

I thought your question was answered - along with "buteman" who was on the same lines as me.

How can you RESTORE something which you didn't SAVE in the first place ? Not difficult to understand is it ?

As "Tullie" says "Forget the arguement and trying to prove yourself right."

I would add to that - Get on with your life, it's too short for that sort of thing.

Yeah the only trouble is that you can imagine that its difficult for two people to talk to eachother in a friendly manner when both claim the other is a liar. either way its all over now so i think i can take that advice now. Thanks for trying to help lads and or lassies

munki magik - I wasn't getting angry at you I was just trying to calm the situation and make you see sense. "How do the cops do it" you ask - well I imagine they don't use FREE or DEMO software that you were suggesting. Glad to see it is all over and sorted. SAVE your hsitory as I have suggested from now on.
