Can anyone please share some tips or tricks on how to recover Facebook email messages when the person on the other end has deactivated or deleted their account? Thanks!
My childrens mother and I have broke up well I have been speaking to her in facebook messenger, and she has continually violated our custody agreement and in her messages with me I was going to use in court at evidence because there was enough there to prove she was willfully and unlawfully failing to comply with our custody agreement, and she knew it I blocked her because she was getting out of hand and my messages and hers were still there, well she deactivates her account! I need those messages for court but there not in my message list anymore! How do I get them?
Sorry to hear about the mess, women can be real dogs sometimes. I haven't tried this personally, but I think it's worth a shot, certainly can't hurt. Facebook allows you to download ALL of your Facebook profile information, which includes all of your messages. There's a chance that even though you don't see a deactivated person's messages in your inbox anymore, that (possibly) you'll still be able to see them in the actual downloaded data when viewed offline.
We have a tutorial on how to download / backup / save all of your Facebook profile to your computer right here.
Also, here's an updated screenshot of the location since it's changed since the tutorial was written (you know how Facebook is with those surprise changes )
Let us know if it worked out for ya.
