Where is the WhatsApp trash?  Learn how to recover your files

Even without the trash, WhatsApp has a backup option that lets you automatically store your chats in the cloud.

The classic question of every user of the WhatsApp instant messaging application is whether the platform has a file litter for recovery of some deleted files. When a file is received and viewed in the app, it is automatically copied to your device.

So, if it is deleted within the conversation, it will remain on your device. Therefore, it is understood that this “trash” of the application is its own gallery. If you delete the device, it will be without access. But if the file is deleted in the conversation and in the device storage, can it be restored?

Even without the trash, WhatsApp has a backup option that lets you create a file cloud storage from their conversations. In the settings, you can do this and choose the period for which you want to perform the backup: daily, weekly or monthly. Through this process, all received conversations and files can be restored.

How to configure backup

To configure this feature and ensure that you never lose chat files whenever you want, just follow Step by Step that we will show you.

  • Enter the WhatsApp settings option and go to “Conversations Backup”;
  • Click on the option and check if it is automatic and what is the time setting;
