Can I find friends I deleted?

Question

Maybe.  It all depends on whether you have been saving IM logs and what you have been doing each time Linden Lab has asked you to accept a viewer update.  Open your computer's AppData folder and look for SecondLife >>> Roaming >>> Larissa Melodie .  If you have been saving IM logs, you should find a set of subfolders in it with the name of each person you have ever had an IM conversation with.  (If you have been saving chat logs, there is also a subfolder labeled "chat" that you can dig through for names, if you have loads of patience.)  The big problem is that all of those folders are wiped out each time you update the viewer, unless you have saved them deliberately before installing the update.  If the folders are missing, you are out of luck.

Hi Larissa,

If you've enabled chat logging (that may be the default, I can't remember) and haven't done a clean install of your viewer recently (which would erase those chat logs), you should have a folder on your PC containing IM logs named after everyone you've IM'ed. I don't know where you'd find that on a PC, but on a Mac it would be here...

Library->Application Support->SecondLife->larrissa_melodie

To get to the Library folder, hold down the Option key while dragging down on the Finder's "Go" menu.

There's a similar pathway on PCs, but a Windows user will have to pop in and describe it.

ETA: And there she is! Rolig's got the Windows PC answer.

WooHoo!  The Maddy-Rolig tag team has the complete answer (unless you're on Linux). :smileyvery-happy:

Another possibility is to look in your Calling Cards folder. They are by user name and not display name but you just click on them and it opens up their profile so that you can see their display name and picture.
