Delete a photo or video from WhatsApp by mistake?
It often happens that our necessary photos and videos are deleted from WhatsApp. You can recover such photos and videos even after they have been deleted. However, you can only download this data within 30 days of its deletion. After a month the data disappears from WhatsApp’s server.
Get deleted photo this way
The photo can be re-downloaded if the user has not deleted the entire chat.
All you have to do is open the chat and scroll to the photo you want. You can then re-download that photo or video. Note that photos and videos can only be returned within 30 days of being deleted.
This error often occurs
Most of the time when downloading a photo on our WhatsApp, an error message appears saying ‘can’t download, please ask that it be resend to you? When such a message arrives, we have to see if the phone has an active internet connection. Also check the data and time of the phone to see if it is correct as it is difficult to connect to the WhatsApp server if the data is incorrect. There are often errors on WhatsApp even when the storage in the phone is full.
