    Hey everyone, just a quick little note about the Messages chat archives. In 10.8, they were stored in ~/Library/Messages/Archive. If you have installed 10.9 and you were frightened by that folder being gone, DO NOT FEAR! They're just in a new location:

    ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iChat/Data/Library/Messages/Archive

    I hope this helps anyone else who is puzzled by this change! :)

    Any idea where the new ones are being stored? (post Mavericks install)

    It seems ~/Library/Messages stores iMessage inside.
