    I am hoping and praying that someone can HELP me!!!!

    I attempted to reinstall Whatsapp on my android, but for some reason, it did not work. I thought I had saved a backup to my Google Drive, but it was not there.

    As a safeguard, I saved a copy of the Whatsapp folder and the .db file to my computer. I reinstalled Whatsapp to my phone and tried to use the .db file from my PC since I did not have the Google Drive backup I thought I had. Unfortunately, I must have done something wrong because that did not work either.

    I'd appreciate any help, and thanks in advance.

    If you mean "install it with all the data it used to have", not without the backup. If you mean "install it so it works", uninstall it, restart the phone, then install it.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is this also your post? https://forums.androidcentral.com/wh...ml#post6593394. If so, I can merge the duplicate threads together.
