    Unhappy Restore whatsapp from PC

    Hi

    I am planning to perform a factory reset on my Galaxy S2. So before doing that I need to backup my
    whatsapp messages on either the SD card or computer.

    Funny though I can see a lot of backup options, but none talks about the feature of restoring the chat history
    from that backup. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Hazel

    WhatsApp automatically makes backups every day at 4 AM and stores them on the microSD memory card of your phone or phone storage if no SD card is present. To restore the most recent back up, you will need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp.
    During the re-installation process, you will be prompted to restore your message history.
    Choose Restore to restore your missing chats.
    If you don't have a micro SD card in your phone copy the entire Whatsapp folder to your PC then copy it back to the phone after the reset but BEFORE re-installing Whatsapp.

    As you are going to reset your phone, so you'd better pull out your SD card before resetting. Anyway, you can use a more reliable free software to backup WhatsApp files to computer for safekeeping. I always use Jihosoft WhatsMate, which can backup WhatsApp messages from Samsung to computer for free.
