How to export and save Zello History on a PC

1. Download the history tool from

2. Open your Command Prompt screen.

3. Locate the file after downloading. In this example we have placed the downloaded hex.exe file into our C Drive.

4. Type hex --help to display the list of commands available.

The only commands needed are the path to the file where the history database is stored (-B) and the directory where the output files will be saved (-O).  Other commands are optional but will name output files with time stamps (-T), filter by lower limit (-S), and filter by upper limit (-F).

-T is a boolean (true/false), please provide the following arguments:
hex -B "HistoryDb" -O .\exp2 -T false
hex -B "HistoryDb" -O .\exp2 -T 0

hex -B "HistoryDb" -O .\exp2 -T true
hex -B "HistoryDb" -O .\exp2 -T 1


5. The example below will export history files from user Eugene, place them in a folder named "Recordings", label each file by date, and export recordings starting on January 1, 2018.

Generally, your files's location will be %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Zello for Work <zello network name>\. For more information on where files are stored see History files.


The saved files can be replayed by using a player. Convert the .ogg file to an mp3 using a converter from the web.
