How to Backup your WhatsApp Messages in Android

  admin       Tuesday, October 7, 2014
The previous content was about how to back up WhatsApp messages in iDevice. By default, WhatsApp for Android automatically creates a daily backup for your conversations and store them the WhatsApp folder on your phone's internal memory or microSD card. But if you wish, you can also create a backup manually. Here's how.

1- Open WhatsApp and hit the menu button (three vertical dots on the top-right)  >>  Settings  >>  Chat Settings  >>  Backup conversations

2- This file will be stored as "msgstore.db.crypt7" in your phone's
/WhatsApp/Databases folder. WhatsApp recommends that your rename this file to "msgstore.db.crypt7.current", without the quotes, to make it easy to find when you want to restore the backup.

3- To restore conversations from a backup, uninstall WhatsApp and find the correct backup file from the WhatsApp folder. Slightly older backups are named "msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt7". In order to restore any of these, rename the file to "msgstore.db.crypt7".

4- Now reinstall WhatsApp. Once you verify your phone number, WhatsApp will show a prompt saying that it has found backed up messages. Tap Restore, choose the correct backup file and wait for the conversations to appear in the app.

That's it!
