How do I find my iChat Files?

The easiest way to locate iChat files is by doing a search in Finder. Enter the "search" in Finder (e.g. simply by entering a letter in the search toolbar, delete it afterwards). Press "+" to add a search query, use "[Kind] is [Other]" with the value "ichat" (or "chat" for even older files).

Alternatively download and open this prepared Finder search, which does the same: Finder-Find-iChat-Files.savedSearch.
