Hi all,

A while ago, let's say fifteen days back I have deleted a very important conversation accidentally. As I was in great need of this important conversation I have tried almost every possible way to retrieve this conversation (except rooting) without any fruits. It did not work.

I don't know it the data is already overwritten but I would like to ask if it is possible to retrieve it and if anyone has some tips? I have almost tried everything but perhaps anyone can provide me another way or manner. I really need the conversation. Should I contact WhatsApp? Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

You can restore the chat messages from the backup.

The older WhatsApp message records are also recoverable from Android device for free. You will need to do the following:
1. Uninstall WhatsApp.
2. Go to backup folder, the default path is: /Internal
Storage/WhatsApp/Databases. From the backup file extension, you can
easily figure out when each backup copy is made.
3. Rename “msgstore.db.crypt” to “newestmsgstore.db.crypt”, in case
your latest message backup getting lost.
4. Select the backup file that you want to restore. Please choose the
date before you accidentally deleted or lost WhatsApp messages.
5. Rename selected file from “msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt8” to
6. Reinstall WhatsApp. Click “Restore” when asked.

If you don't have backup, you should use Gihosoft WhatsApp recovery program to get them back.

Hope it helps!
