One of the most annoying things that can happen to us, is loosing our WhatsApp data. This could include our chat history media and even documents. So today in this article we would be showing you how to recover your lost WhatsApp data that you have backed up in Google Drive.
Google Drive is an online cloud storage software that allows users to store data online and retrieve them at their conveniences.
So If you have back up your WhatsApp messages with Google Drive before, you can retrieve deleted or lost messages on WhatsApp via the backup copy.
Kindly follow the steps below to retrieve your WhatsApp lost data that you have backed up in Google Drive before :
Step 1 Uninstall the WhatsApp on your device.
Step 2 Reinstall it and sign in your account.
Step 3 There would be prompted with a message to restore your backup after you open the reinstalled WhatsApp. Please tap “Restore”. And the job is done!
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
- Only allows the option to back up and restore for devices with the same Operating System.
- If you never back up before, you are not able to restore the data when accidentally delete.
- It doesn’t allow you to select recover the data selectively and you need to restore the whole files on the backup copy, even some of them are useless.
- If you skip the restore step when you re-install WhatsApp, you could never restore it in this way
