Can a person access their own previous instant messenger conversations off the hard drive? If so, how can one access it off their computer? I lost a phone number and need access to it again!

Thank you!

The only way to access IM conversations off of the hdd is if you have "saved" the conversation. Click on start --> search and find the *.txt file that is saved when you use the file --> save function from within your IM software.

Otherwise, IM conversations are not kept when you exit the program. They are not in *.tmp or anyplace else on your workstation.
