    I'm a whatsapp user and migrating to a new better phone. Before that I took complete backup of whatsapp from Old phone which was 12GB in size.
    Now I installed whatsapp on new phone and when I'm trying to restore backup from GDrive(used same gmail a/c and phone number), it says the size of backup is 53GB which is way more than actual size.
    Could you please advise how can I fix this issue and be able to restore only 12GB (actual size)?

    Do you have multiple WhatsApp backups, or is it just the one? It might be trying to restore multiple WhatsApp backups that may not be needed.

    I moved this to the WhatsApp forum for more specific traffic.

    Could it be that the backup is zipped, and the actual file size of the unzipped backup is 53GB?
