My whatsapp backups are getting huge, and Yes I checked that the "Back up videos" option is unchecked. One single backup is about 312 MB plus the fact that whastapp keeps 7 backups That totals to 2.1GB of used up space.
I personally don't mind having backups of actual "text messages" but I don't want image backups, since most of my images are just memes,reposts, nothing important.
Things I have tried, I deleted all my whatsapp images and runned a backup after, the backup was still the same size.
So is there a way to:
- Make the backups smaller by preventing image backups.
- Delete the images in the Whatsapp threads without clearing all chat.
- Reduce 7 day backups to maybe 2 day backups without deleting manually everyday.
Any solution that addresses one of the above will be appreciated. I am also open to solutions that involve mods, root-only, xposed-framework, etc
