I am using Whatsapp on a computer with the help of Bluestacks. can anyone suggest where exactly it stores the data? I cannot find it on my hard disk alhtough I can find on Whatsapp.
you can install dropbox and upload there
As Flair_blair suggest Astro File Manager in your Bluestack interface, You should get a folder 'mnt'. In this, you will find the folder 'sdcard'. in it folder 'whatsapp'
pc - C Drive - ProgramData - BlueStacks - UserData - SharedFolder-WhatsApp
your folder options must be customized to showing hidden files
Backing up whatsapp contacts and message conversations from bluestacks to phone
using astro file manager Navigate to sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases/
But I want to figure it out on PC. I navigated as you mentioned to SHAREDFOLDER. but I can find android folder instead of whatsapp.
do a search for WhatsApp with everything
also do not forget unhide hidden folders
You need to install Astro File Manager in your Bluestack interface. There you'll find a Whatsapp folder, then media and further.
You can also move the whatsapp images from bluestacks to my pictures folder in my documents.
But I came to know that whatapp dont store the messages in there data base. they just deliver once the user is online. But i am not able to find the exact location where it is located on my folder that consists of all the videos and pictures.
Whatsapp stores messages and files on their servers for a "short" time. Short being a little open ended on how you interpretate their policies. As far as I have read I believe its for about 30 days then they are removed but as I say its open-ended.
I found a video that might help you
