Hi,
I'm having a serious problem while recovering messages in whatsapp. Let me explain what exactly happened, My phone was lagging a lot. I backup my whatsapp data to: gul200hameed@gmail.com. So I decided to reset my android device using recovery mode by combinations of keys. After the successful reset, I fed in my google account at startup: gul20000hameed@gmail.com, then I happened to install whatsapp from the Google Playstore. I inserted my phone number i.e., +966570192024. There was no backup option shown and it logged me into the main whatsapp chat screen. I was depressed for no chat backup. I searched everywhere until I came across the backup option showing "Last backup time: Never". Fool me, I pressed the same button showing: "Last backup time: Never". Then, OMG! nothing happened. No back up or what (was being an idiot.)
I came up to know that I haven't yet added my second account i.e., gul200hameed@gmail.com, through which I last backup the messages. I tried reinstalling the app, now a backup screen appeared showing only 10KB of data. But the original size was nearly 200MB before I was being foolish to press that button showing: "Last backup time: Never". I'm seriously so depressed and having so much stress upon this situations. I had my Girl Friend's old messages in this account. They are part of my life. If they are gone, I will be left stressed out for rest of my life. Please Help. Excuse my English. :')

Account that lose messages: gul200hameed@gmail.com
Last deleted whatsapp: 16th April, 2017.

Device: Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 GT-S7582

Your deleted data might be on the Android phone internal memory or sd card. It is mostly straight forward to restore data if you had data on the sd card. This would be same as restoring from laptop hard drive. One of the things you need to do remember when you try to restore data from Android phone is you should not create or copy new data on to Android device, this might overwrite your lost data. Also, you need to recover data to separate drive or location if possible.

You can retrieve deleted WhatsApp messages from Samsung Galaxy S like this:
1. Do not save any new files into the memory card of your phone.
2. Connect it with computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H in My Computer.)
3. Download FORecovery Android Data Recovery into your computer.
4. Install and open the program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your files.
