In order to find a solution to a certain problem I'm having, I'm trying to do a Google search with the terms:
copy "msgstore.db" to new phone
A bit of context must be provided before I can continue:
msgstore.dbis a file which contains the Whatsapp messages in unencrypted form. It does not exist outside the Whatsapp DATA folder within the Android system (so it cannot be accessed by conventional means). It`s the working database file for Whatsapp.
Anything ending in
.cryptis an encrypted database file, created for backup purposes in the sdcard. Thus it can be accessed by anyone.
Now, the vast majority of websites out there are full or articles directed to "casual" users, so they only contain info pertaining to the second case, but these are useless to me since I'm trying to do something very peculiar. (Posted on Android.SE).
I need results containing the exact words "msgstore.db", but my query is returning pages containing keywords like
msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.db.crypt8 despite the fact that I isolated the terms with quotation marks.
Is my query wrong, and if so, what would be the right way to do such a search?
