Chat and IM logs

By default, Second Life automaticallys saves local chat and IM conversations to log files on your hard drive.

Log files

Log files are saved to a location that depends on you operating system:

  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\SecondLife\Avatarname\chat.txt
  • Windows 7 and Vista: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife\chat.txt
  • Mac OSX: Users/Username/Library/Application Support/SecondLife/Avatarname/chat.txt

Where Username is your system account name and Avatarname is your Second Life username.

You'll see there are lots of text files in the folder. Each text file contains chat between you and your friend, group, and such. You can delete them if you don't need.

In addition to Ry0ta's excellent answer, you can turn off logging in Preferences/Privacy.

I don't recommend this.  There are times when chat and IM logs can be useful.

Also, the Knowledgebase article is slightly incorrect.  The file path for Windows7/Vista isn't quite what that says...but it will get you close enough to find the log files.
