RESTORE DELETED CHATS IN WATSAP
The question of how to recover deleted correspondence in WhatsApp can arise, for example, when reinstalling the application itself or when transferring it to another phone. Indeed, it doesn’t get complicated if you properly understand the problem. But first you have to understand …
Where does WhatsApp store its archives?
It should be noted immediately that, unlike many other instant messengers or social networks, WhatsApp does not store anything on its central servers. So it won’t work just to connect from another device and get the full history.
There are several ways to save:
ICloud or Google Drive cloud services;
On SD memory cards;
In the internal memory of the device.
How do I create, edit and delete a group in WhatsApp?
With cloud storage, everything is more or less clear: archives are stored in a folder specified by the user. It is enough to remove them from there and put them on a memory card or in the memory of the phone itself. And here the second question arises: Where should the file with the archives actually be stored? Everything is very simple: they are automatically placed in the / sdcard / WhatsApp / Databases folder or simply WhatsApp / Databases if no memory card is used. However, you can restore directly from iCloud. To do this, after entering the phone, you need to agree to restore the backup.
How do you recover?
After copying, you have to rename the folder at the address given above from msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt8 to msgstore.db.crypt8. You can then reinstall WhatsApp. Immediately after reinstalling WhatsApp, after entering the phone number, you will be prompted to restore your message history. The answer should be positive.

If recovery fails, you need to make sure of the following:
Check if you have an internet connection.
Check if you have a connection to Google Drive or iCloud services. You may have been deregistered.
If they are accidentally deleted, do these services really have the files they need?
Does this version of Android support cloud services? The point is, Google Drive only works with Android version 2.3.4 or higher.
Did you copy and rename the archive file correctly?
Finally, you need to make sure that there is enough free space on your device.
