To restore a Google Drive backup properly, you must use the same phone number and Google Account that you used to create the backup.

To restore your backup, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your new Android device is connected to the Google Account where your backup is stored.
  2. After you’ve installed and opened WhatsApp, you’ll need to authenticate your phone number.
  3. When prompted, tap RESTORE to restore your Google Drive chats and media.
  4. Tap NEXT when the restore is finished. Once initialization is complete, your chats will be visible.
  5. After your chats have been restored, WhatsApp will proceed to restore your media files.

If you install WhatsApp without first backing up your data to Google Drive, WhatsApp will restore your data from your local backup file.

How To Restore WhatsApp Chat On Android from a local backup

You’ll need to transfer the data to the phone using a computer, file explorer, or SD Card if you wish to use a local backup.

To restore your backup, follow these steps:

  1. Install a file manager application.
  2. Navigate to your local storage or sd card > WhatsApp > Databases in the file management app. If your data isn’t on an SD card, “internal storage” or “primary storage” may appear instead. Copy the most recent backup file to your new device’s Databases folder on local storage.
  3. After you’ve installed and opened WhatsApp, you’ll need to authenticate your phone number.
  4. When prompted, tap RESTORE to restore your chats and media from a local backup.

Note:

  • Local backup files from the previous seven days will be stored on your phone.
  • Every day at 2:00 a.m., a local backup will be produced and saved as a file on your phone.
  • You might notice “internal storage” or “primary storage” directories if your data isn’t stored in the /sdcard/WhatsApp/ area.

How To Restore a less recent local backup On Android

You’ll need to do the following if you wish to restore a local backup that isn’t the most recent:

  1. Install a file manager application.
  2. Navigate to your local storage or sdcard > WhatsApp > Databases in the file management app. If your data isn’t on the SD card, “internal storage” or “main storage” may appear instead.
  3. From msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12 to msgstore.db.crypt12, rename the backup file you want to restore. It’s possible that an older backup used a different protocol, such crypt9 or crypt10. Don’t change the crypt extension’s number.
  4. WhatsApp should be uninstalled and reinstalled.
  5. When prompted, press RESTORE.

How To Restore WhatsApp Chat On iPhone from an iCloud backup 2022

  1. Check WhatsApp > Settings > Chats > Chat Backup for an iCloud backup.
  2. Delete and reinstall WhatsApp if you can see when the last backup was made.
  3. Follow the prompts to restore your chat history after authenticating your phone number.

Note

  • iCloud Drive must be turned on and you must be signed in using the Apple ID you use to access iCloud.
  • Both your iCloud and iPhone must have enough free space. You’ll need at least 2.05 times the amount of storage space in your iCloud account and on your phone as the size of your backup.
  • The backup and restoration phone numbers must be the same. The whatsapp chat history from another WhatsApp account cannot be restored.
  • Because backups are associated with specific phone numbers, numerous WhatsApp accounts can be backed up under the same iCloud account.

The bottom line is that its actually very simple to recover deleted messages in whatsapp. All you have to do is follow the above steps and you will be fine.

So if you have made up your mind to restore your whatsapp chat, you can try any of the methods mentioned above. Hope this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to ask below in the comments section.
