Happy days! The new version of the Skype ChatSynch reader tool is already [here] (binaries and source files in Delphi). New functionality added:
- Date-time stamp of every message is extracted
- The IDs of conversation's parties are properly extracted and matched with the messages.
- Many different bugs fixed.
Big thanks to Rasmus Riis Kristensen from the Computer Crime Unit of Danish National Police for reverse engineering the location of the data in Skype .dat files. This is how the Skype reader looks now:
More information about the tool: read the [previous post]. I am happy to know that the program is used by people (also as a forensic tool!) and still is under development. If you may help with more information about the Skype files data structure - this would be veeeery much appreciated... :)
