WhatsApp Data Recovery for Android - Samsung Galaxy S9+

A customer called me up asking for help, while switching over to her new phone she notice that all the past WhatsApp messages were gone.

There were important messages in the WhatsApp for her next day meeting where she had forgotten to backup while transferring over to the new phone

I took over the old Samsung Galaxy S9+ and than notice that the WhatsApp chat history has already been deleted

I decided to give it a try to see whether a data recovery would work for WhatsApp

1.) Turn on OEM Unlocking and USB Debugging in Developer Options which is hidden in the settings

2.) Backdate the date to 7 days before so the OEM Unlocking options will appear

3.) Get it Rooted for the Data Recovery Software to work

I than did a scan of the Internal Memory of the WhatsApp Folder where the database (messages) were store in

Successfully recovered and found 10135 files since Year 2014 - present

Customer thanks me for the help and my services where she got back the important messages that she need
