Default Trouble Restoring Old Whatsapp chats(From my old smartphone to MOTO E)

I recently bought MOTO E and reinstalled most of my previous smartphone apps easily, however i am somehow unable to restore my whatsapp chats completely.
I tried restoring from database, it works fine with chat history but media doesn't appear(Yes i copied media folder).

Also, any way to have whatsapp media stored on external sd card in MOTO E
my whatsapp folder is taking a lot of data, eating lot of internal memory

uninstall whats app from moto e
backup your Contacts from other device (i suggest use Super Backup app from app store)
restore your Contacts to moto e
copy paste chat/media folder of whats app to moto e and install it again Enjoy.

if your Both Devices are rooted then use titanium backup Simply.

It's actually simple...go to settings>apps>WhatsApp - clear the data

Now paste the WhatsApp folder from ur old phone into internal memory of moto e(not SD card)

Launch WhatsApp, ur conversations will be restored.
