How To Recover Deleted Whatsapp Messages

How To Recover Deleted Whatsapp Messages
7/12/2018
Android Smartphones are really amazing but might be annoying sometimes as a simple swipe might wipe out vital information on your the device like the WhatsApp messages and history. Today we will see how to recover deleted WhatsApp messages.

Whatsapp makes backups automatically each day around 2am in the morning to the phones internal memory. This allows users to retrieve old messages that are deleted, i.e messages sent or received before the backup time. This is an advantage on recovering deleted WhatsApp messages and we don't need to worry about losing WhatsApp chat histories.

In addition to backing up data offline to internal memory, data backups can be set to be stored online to the Google Drive platform automatically. Similar to offline backup, we can restore deleted messages, but in an easier way with this backup method.


To do this, we just need to re-install WhatsApp to restore data stored in Google Drive or on the device internal storage. On startup of WhatsApp after reinstalling, it will automatically offer an option to recover the old data stored on Google's Drive or search for backup on internal storage. Apart from these two ways of automatically making message Backups. WhatsApp users can also create WhatsApp backups manually, without the need for backup.

To access the WhatsApp backup option, friends can open the WhatsApp app, then click the three dot icon (the other menu icon) at the top right corner, click on Settings, select Chats, and then go to the Chats Backup menu. We can set up a data backup from the settings menu.

If you mistakenly deleted a WhatsApp message you can retrieve it using data recovery using Google Drive if it's set. But if not, the following below reviews how to read or return messages that have been deleted in the application WhatsApp manually.

How to Return a Deleted WhatsApp Message

This is a little bit different from data recovery using Google Drive, here we will be a bit complicated if you want to restore data manually. In addition to a fairly complicated way, we must ensure that the data we want has been stored in this data backup. Deleted data should be saved before the backup time and we can return it if it is backed up. To restore messages and re-read deleted messages, follow these steps:

1. Open the file manager that has been installed on the phone

2. Go to WhatsApp folder, then look for the Database folder to search for deleted data

3. WhatsApp data backup in that folder has format msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt ** with YYYY is year, MM is the month, and DD is the date. Copy the data you want to restore according to the backup date to another folder.

4. Uninstall WhatsApp app

5. Rename the backup data to msgstore.db.crypt ** without changing the ** number written. And go back to the Databases folder inside the WhatsApp folder

6. After that, re-install WhatsApp to phone

After a reinstalling successfully, you will be directed to recover the backup data already stored. Tap Recover to restore data.

Viola, our message has been recovered. But, if the message does not return, it can happen because we choose the wrong data. In addition, you also have to be careful because after reinstall it could be the data we mean even come missing.
