Hi there guys!

I'd like to know if there is any way to recover raw data files from a whatsapp .crypt file.
I used the site "RECOVER MESSAGES" to recover most of a talk in this file, but some of the texts were lost in the process, the website generated a section in which it lists all the messages that it could not recover.

They're mostly show in binary language or something, like this one:

Just so that I can say it:
I tried putting those files in a pen drive and used data recovery softwares like "Active File Recover" or "Recuva" etc, but it didn't work : (

Have you tried contacting the program support people?

The .crypt file name part makes me think this is an encrypted or encoded file not made to be read.

You're right, it's encrypted, and it's only supposed to be restored by the owner's phone as a backup.
If you get this files on a PC and try to open them, they won't open.

It took me a few hours to find a solution to open those files, the website "recover messages" was the best of them.

It decrypted the file, so that I could see most of it, but I still cant' see some, as it says it was lost during the process.

When you mean "program support people", you mean here on this board, right?
'Cause whatsapp people probably won't help me at all, since I'm not supposed to do what I'm doing anyway lol : )

Maybe you can download a tool named Backuptrans Android WhatsApp Transfer to help. It lets you decrypt and extract messages from whatsapp backup file(*.crypt). Restoring chats from backup file back to your device is also supported. Hope it helps.
