Step by step history tool guide

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 is stored (-D) 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 -D "HistoryData" -O .\exp2 -T false
hex -D "HistoryData" -O .\exp2 -T 0

hex -D "HistoryData" -O .\exp2 -T true
hex -D "HistoryData" -O .\exp2 -T 1


5. The example below will: export history files from user admin, place them in a folder named "Recordings", label each file by date, export recordings starting on July 30th, 2015.

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 using a player. Convert the .ogg file to an mp3 using a converter from the web.
