I had been using Fouad whatsapp v8.12 for quite some time and it was working flawlessly until 20th February when they released a new update with V8.26.

The problem is it starts absolutely fine but I can't seem to restore my recently backed up msgs, when I try to restore on the main screen, it says
No backup found in sdcard/whatsapp/

And when I try to restore the backup from fuoad settings after verification it still gives me the same msg.

It automatically restores some very old msgs from last year although I made a new backup.

Any help would be appreciated, I've already tried several suggestions that were helpful before but none seem to be working now.

The only solution I found out was to clean install fouad and the skipping the first step where it asks me to restore and it automatically picked the backup file from the folder.

Don't know if it'll work for you but it worked for me.

You need to put the backup file in the backup folder that fuoad whatsapp creates
I m on stage as per 1st image
Till here it has automatically created 2 folders as per 2nd image
Now as per second image from second folder I have copied yobackup folder and databases folder to first folder
Now first folder consist of 3 sub folder i. e media, databases, and yobackup so I have also pasted my 2.63 gb file in that databases folder

I think it's the folder with numbers, what you can do it clear all the storage of fuoad whatsapp by renaming the backup file, open the fuoad whatsapp application and then see which folders it creates and put your backups in that folder.

I stopped using fuoad whatsapp sometime ago due to the same issues of backup on google drive, so this is what I remember the last time I faced this issue.
