Did you delete the WhatsApp folder on your phone? If not, check the local backup with the file manager, especially for the media files (local storage/WhatsApp/Media). Disconnect WhatsApp backup from Google Drive, and then restore from local backup after reinstalling WhatsApp.

I am not sure the solution as below will Work for you. Just for your reference.

  1. Download and copy the old backup you found on Google Drive to your Whatsapp folder in internal storage.
  2. Try to restore from the local backup file then.

Good luck to you.

But my current backup has overwritten the previous one and I wish to restore the previous one with the media which is probably still in the drive and current one doesnt have media backup
