Following instructions found on WhatsApp FAQs I created a backup folder on my SD card of my old windows-based phone.
I tried to restore chat history on my new Android phone (LG Leon), with no success. I did the following steps:
- removed previous WhatsApp installation on Android
- put the sd card with the backup files (files are in SD card in the WhatsApp/WinPhoneBackup folder)
- reinstalled WhatsApp
- reactivated WhatsApp (sms stuff) and asked to recover backup
Unfortunately there's no way to allow WhatsApp to discover the backup files. Am I doing something wrong?
