Question re: where recordings are stored

Mar 18, 2014 at 11:22 PM
I am wanting to use Skype Auto Recorder for interviews as part of a research project. I require, however, that the Personal Information of the interviewees (including content of the call/interview and their phone number) not be taken outside of my country / Australia. If you could you explain where the data and metadata of the recording is stored that would be hugely appreciated. I could not find it in the documentation area of this site.

You can configure where application stores final recording as explained in the documentation page on this website.

As for process of recording call:
  • Recorder writes temp files for separate channels to the Temp folder "C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Temp\". Each file starts with the "sar_" prefix and has ".wav" extension.
  • Also, Recorder may place your MP3 to the "C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\SkypeAutoRecorder" if the destination folder is unreachanble.
In case of successfull recording, temp files are removed automatically.
