I've tried finding an answer to this one but haven't had luck so far.
My phone was playing up, so I went into recovery mode and cleared the cache partition. I've since worked out what the problem was and I didn't need to clear the cache.
The problem is that when I loaded whatsapp, it was going through the install procedure again. It found a backup, but the restore is from December 2014.
I've had a look at whatsapp/databases/ and all the files are the same date of 2014, so It appears it wasn't storing them there.
My question is this: If it wasn't storing the chats in whatsapp/databases, then where does it store the current chat data? Is there a way it can be recovered?
