I needed to Factory Reset my android phone, so before I do that, I took a local backup of WhatsApp chats that is the msgstore.db.crypt12 files. I copied the whole "Databases" folder to my laptop. Then I did a Factory Reset on my phone. After that, I copied the latest msgstore file (after renaming it "msgstore.db.crypt12") to WhatsApp>Databases. After that, I reinstalled WhatsApp. But it only detects the old backup from Google Drive and not this local backup file when I tap OK on RESTORE screen. What am I doing wrong? (I had no idea about the key before today, so is this all now pointless if I don't have the key? I read somewhere that the WhatsApp servers also have the key. Is is true? Also, my phone is not rooted and I don't wanna root it.)
