About data from Android devices

Top  Previous  Next

EXWA allows you to analyze the WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business data from your rooted Android devices previously backed up to your computer.

Loading WhatsApp data from Android devices is available for both rooted and unrooted devices.
Loading WhatsApp Business data from Android devices is available only for rooted devices.

When saving the WhatsApp data to the local storage:

1. Make sure your device is rooted.

2. Copy the \data\data\com.whatsapp folder from the device. Once you have copied it, make sure to preserve the original WhatsApp data structure. Otherwise, EXWA would be unable to analyze it properly.

3. Take note of the path to the com.whatsapp_preferences.xml file (i.e., <folder with the backup on your PC>\com.whatsapp\shared_prefs\)

4. Copy the \sdcard\WhatsApp folder from the device. Once you have copied it, make sure to preserve the original WhatsApp data structure. Otherwise, EXWA would be unable to analyze it properly.

5. Take note of the path to the Media folder (i.e., <folder with the backup on your PC>\WhatsApp\Media)
