How to Backup and Restore Whatsapp Without Google Drive
There are times when someone rushes to delete WhatsApp but forgets to back up first. If you experience something like this, don’t worry, your chat can still be saved and returned to your new cell phone.
Whatsapp every day at 2:00 in the morning will do autobackup which is stored in the internal memory of the phone, this is what we will use.
The steps are as follows:
1.To be able to access this automatic backup file, you can go to Internal Storage> WhatsApp> Database.
2.In this Database folder all your automatic backup files are saved, you can choose a file with the name msgstore.db.crypt12 (number 12 can be another number, but the first file name remains the same)
Or you can also choose a backup file with a longer date in the folder. Remember not to change this number or your backup files will not be read.
3.Then you can use USB OTG or manually connect to a laptop to move the msgstore.db.crypt12 file to a new cell phone.
4.After the file is successfully copied, you can connect your new cell phone to the USB OTG or connect to a laptop manually.
5.Search for the folder with the same name Internal Storage> WhatsApp> Database and enter the msgstore.db.crypt12 file there.
6.If your WhatsApp has been used before, you can enter settings and delete your WhatsApp data, or if you are confused by this step you can immediately uninstall your WhatsApp and install it again. Without going through this process, previously transferred files will not be read and also risks being exposed to new automatic backup files.
7.After completing the steps above, now enter WhatsApp as usual then register your phone number.
8.Later you will get a notification that there is a backup file on your cellphone, press restore or restore then wait for the process.
9.Completed, your whatsapp data from an old cell phone has been successfully recovered without using Google Drive.
