Question [Q] Whatsapp cannot restore backup!

I've been trying to restore my chats from my Galaxy Fit with whatsapp version 2.11.175 to my Galaxy S3 Neo with whatsapp version 2.11.238 with no success! I transferred my sd card which contains the whatsapp folder(old). It didn't work. So, I copy/pasted the database & several other folders that weren't there in the new folder (the 2.11.238's folder) from the sd card one and reinstalled the app. This time it asked if I wanted to restore the found backup or which I clicked the restore button...After few seconds, I got an error saying it couldn't restore & continued synchronizing. >_<
Is there a way to restore all the chats? Without rooting?
Please help guys! Thanks in advance!

If you would like to keep a record of your messages on a computer or in email, you can email yourself individual chat histories. Please follow these steps:

Open the chat you wish to save.
Tap the three dots in the bottom right hand corner.
Tap info.
In the info screen, scroll down and tap email chat history.
Note: Your chat history may be cut off by the Windows Mail message size restriction.

I don't know other ways.
