    I had a problem restoring my chat history from onedrive.
    The problem is i did a hard reset of my windows phone and everything was uninstalled.Now,on reinstalling Whatsapp,first time,it didn't ask to search for any backup.But,I accidentally turn the back up on and my previous one was sent to recycle bin in onedrive.
    After restoring the backup,i uninstalled Whatsapp from my device and this time it asked to searcch for backups.But,it restored my history to the one i did back up accidentally after resetting my device.
    Is there any way to backup from the previous one from OneDrive(pls,i have some important stuff to look upon)?
    Ok,I did some searching and found that there is some way to restore Google Drive Backups on Android by renaming a file.
    Can this be done in some way to Windows Phone?

    You would have to be able to retrieve the file which was deleted.

    I don't use OneDrive, and don't know if deleted files can be restored.

    If it can be restored, then simply use the "deleted" file to replace the current file. If it can't be restored, then you are out of luck.
