    From the while using Long Ago Machine, not long ago, even though it only archives websites in times. I’m searching for an internet page published for any specific time period that the Long Ago Machine doesn’t cover, what are the good archives which have a far more frequent rate of archiving? Thanks.

    I erased my archives since i was attempting to make another page on their behalf. After I attempted to edit it, a window put their hands up saying it had been invalid since it was erased. How do you have it fixed on my small page?

    Within the movie Raiders from the Lost Ark I discover their whereabouts store it having a forklift. I’ve counted the rows and it may be in row 230/a/16 within the warehouse however i aren’t able to find this warehouse on mapquest or google maps. If you’re able to let me know this warehouse location as well as the row it’s in, I must take a look in the Archives for any couple of days simply to show my buddies.

    I use more than 1 computer and when I look at the IM archive, I can only see those messages sent/received on the computer that I am using at the time. How can I see the archive of IM messages sent/received on a different computer without turning on that computer?

    My computer went mad and I had the option to back up just before I had to restore the computer to factory settings. I’ve restored all of my old data but I can’t seem to find where all my archived chats from yahoo messenger have gone? Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi everyone

    I have had this PC for some years now. I have this huge messages in my yahoo messenger archive which are somehow important for me to keep. So, I like to transfer them to my new computer but it takes a long time if I just copy paste them somewhere in order to keep them, is there any other ways that I could do this?! Has yahoo messenger this feature?!

    Thanks so much

    All was OK on Sunday. I happened to look at the archive yesterday, and found most messages were corrupted, with most of the text missing. Later, the text was restored to the messages, but much of the text was clumped together, with lines running together to make it practically unreadable.

    Our group has 12 years of weekly newsletters on that board, I would hate to see it all trashed.

    In the interest of saving lots of time I’d like to save my entire Yahoo Messenger chat archive to a disk w/o having to copy or load each individual chat friend or chat date. Does anyone know how to make this happen? Mostly I only care to do this before upgrading to Messenger 10 without losing my previous chats from version 9, to be safe.

    my husband says he used his computers to have a conversation while his archive is set to off….he sometimes uses my computer and when he logged in (his archive is set to on) he’s sees the conversation saved there, so he’s accusing me of putting it there.

    If his archive is set to off and he swears he had the conversation there, how is it possible for it to be on my computer unless he had the conversation on mine??

    Thanks, Jon
    i see only 4 under the contact that i have been chatting with. I need to keep more than this…

    where is the setting to set the duration longer?
    that was my question.

    I don’t see a duration and it only saves 4-5 days worth of messages before yahoo messenger deletes them from my archive.
    i want to keep them all.

    I have downloaded and installed the latest version of YM (australian version) and now my archive is gone? Can I get it back? Where can I find it?
    All I did was follow the prompts. yesterday I had about 250 conversations and now I have none. The only box I ticked was when asked if I agreed to the terms and conditions. I have installed new versions inside the last year but have still retained my archive without doing anything special up until now.
    How can I find them on my hard drive?
    Yahoo / Messenger / Profiles / “user name”/ Archive folder is empty :((
    Can I somehow retrieve my lost conversations? They must be here somewhere?

And as I installed Yahoo Messenger on my new laptop it was automatically set to clear message archives. Does this affect the old data on my laptop? Please help.

This leaves me with a twofold problem. Will deleting Yahoo Messenger on the borrowed PC, DELETE completely the archive of chats I had on that PC? If not, where will I find the folder of chats archive? Secondly, is there any way I can transfer the chat archive from the borrowed PC to my own PC ?

    When I set outlook 2007 to archive, does this mean once the email account has reached it’s quota, it will start to put the older emails on to the local PC stored in one file, labeled “archive.pst”?

    Does Outlook 07 archive only emails from the inbox to the .pst file?
    How does it work with archiving folders to the .pst?

    As in, if I have FOLDER1 with 20 emails in it, and I have an archive set up, when does it start to archive FOLDER1 emails or does it only archive the inbox?

    When does Outlook 07 push emails to be stored on the local PC vs the exchange account and how does it do this with folders?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance. Best answer lands the 10!
