    Bought a new Mac and moved from the old Mac to the new Mac with Time Machine and guess what I lost all my Messages History of all my chats. How can I get them back?

    Thanks,


    John

    Mine are here:

    /Users/<username>/Library/Containers/com.apple.iChat/Data/Library/Messages/Archive/

    See if that folder has content and has been restored correctly. You should find them by searching for "ichat"
