Adium Chat Transcripts Location

This applies to those using the ever-popular IM client, Adium.

Adium is a free instant mes­sag­ing appli­ca­tion for Mac OS X that can con­nect to AIM, MSN, Jab­ber, Yahoo, and more.

If you are in a sit­u­a­tion were you would need to back up your chat tran­scripts due to account migra­tion, or in need to do a clean instal­la­tion of your OS X machine, here’s where to start:

~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Users/Default/Logs

Note: This is cur­rent as of Leop­ard OS X 10.5.4, and Adium 2.x.

    I have read this in sev­eral places, but both on my old hd and my new hd I do not have a Library > Appli­ca­tion Sup­port > Adium folder. I only have fold­ers for like Adobe and Apple, but no Adium.

    I do not know why there is no folder for adium… any other place that my chat tran­scripts might be located?

      @Chris: That’s strange… And you put the tilde (“~”) in front when try­ing to open it up in Finder cor­rect (Command-G), like above?

      I will re-check on my iMac tomor­row when I get in to work. The above address was cor­rect in my MBPro.

        @Chris: Just to get back to what I said last night. Make sure to have that tilde (“~”). You might be acci­den­tally going to this loca­tion instead “/Library/Application Support/…”
