Part 1: WhatsApp recovers deleted messages from Samsung within one day.

If what you want to recover the messages in the WhatsApp, the deletion is only within one day. you are lucky. Because it means it would be easy for you to restore the messages you just lost. Thanks to the strong function of WhatsApp, it will make a backup to your messages automatically by using both your local backup and Google Driver(if you have). So now let us see how to do it.

Step 1: You need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp.
Step 2: Enter your country code and phone number to verify our identity. After your phone number being verified correctly, you can restore your messages and media from your phone's internal storage. If you don't restore now, you won't be able to restore later.
Note: If you have signed in Google Drive account in your WhatsApp, in this step, you should sign in your Google Drive account. Then restore your messages and media from Google Drive. If you don't recover now, you won't be able to recover later.
Step 3: Click on Restore to recover WhatsApp Messages on Samsung Devices. WhatsApp message recovery finishes.

Part 2: WhatsApp message recovery from Samsung within one to seven days.

If you are not that lucky because of the deletion of messages you want to restore within one to seven days, do not be so worried because there is still a solution. But you should turn off the Google Drive in WhatsApp. There only add some step than part 1. You must rename the backup file, and then operate the first part. So let's see the detailed step of WhatsApp message recovery from Samsung within one to seven days.

Step 1: Connect your phone to the computer and enter the local backup folder: internal storage / WhatsApp / database. If your Samsung phone has SD card, you should turn to the directory SD card / WhatsApp / database.
Step 2: In the local backup folder, the latest backup file has been named msgstore.db.crypt12 and the older backup file has been named msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12. Here Y means year, M means month and D means day, and you should know that the local backup files can only show the latest seven days data of your phone. You should find out the file you want to recover in the local backup files and rename the file from msgstore-YYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12 to msgstore.db.crypt12. You can also rename the original msgstore.db.crypt12 to oldmsgstore.db.crypt12 or others to avoid rewriting.
Step 3: Until now you can execute the same steps as part 1 to uninstall and reinstall the WhatsApp to restore.
