You can try using SkypeLogView it reads the log files created by Skype application, and displays the details of incoming/outgoing calls, chat messages, and file transfers made by the specified Skype account. You can select one or more items from the logs list, and then copy them to the clipboard, or export them into text/html/csv/xml file.


System Requirements

This utility works on any version of Windows starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 8. You don't have to install Skype in order to use this utility. You only need the original log files created by skype, even if they are on an external drive.


Skype Log Files Location

Skype Log files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\[Profile Name]\Application Data\Skype\[Skype User]. In Windows Vista and 2008, the log files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\[Profile Name]\AppData\Roaming\Skype\[Skype User].


Using SkypeLogView

SkypeLogView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - SkypeLogView.exe 
If Skype is installed on your system, SkypeLogView automatically detect the last used account, and loads the logs from it. You can select to view the logs of another account by using the "Select Logs Folder" option. 
After you loaded the right logs, you can select one or more items from the list, and then save them to text/csv/html/xml file.
