I accidebtly blocked a reported a conversation on WhatsApp which wiped the full conversation with the contact. I really need those messages back. I have followed the instructions on the WhatsApp web page but it isn't working.

It seems to just be using the most recent back up (doesn't include the lost messages). I can't work out how to use an old back up.

Any help would really be appreciated, I really need those messages.

Recover WhatsApp Chat History from older (less recent) backups
Uninstall WhatsApp.
Open the WhatsApp database or backup folder. Decide which backup file you want to restore.
Rename that file from “msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt7” to “msgstore.db.crypt7”.
Install WhatsApp.
When asked to restore, tap Restore
