    Default Chat history on new phone

    I copied the Database folder from my old android phone on to my new Moto G in the Whatsapp folder. Then I installed Whatsapp, when I opened it, it verified my number and then it asked me if I wanted to restore my backup. I clicked on yes. It started restoring, but it didn't complete as I didn't see anything telling me that I have restored a certain number of messages. It took me directly to the page where I could edit my Picture and name. It managed to restore all groups. But I haven't any messages in these groups. And neither do I have any Personal Chats. I still have the previous backup. And I have tried factory resetting my Moto G, but to no avail.

    Not possible to do that, the database is encrypted and cannot be transferred like that
