Restore earlier backup than last on WhatsApp

I

iMore Question

I keep all my WhatsApp chat history. I wanted to backup to iCloud to keep a copy should I lose my phone. I backed up on Jan 11 around 4pm. Deleted my chat history.. auto backup was turned on. When I went to restore .. it shows last backup on Jan 19 .. restore only restored Jan 17 onward .. I’ve lost everything. Apple says they don’t store in iCloud as it’s a 3rd party app. WhatsApp has email contact and they refer you to their FAQ - 0 help..

WhatsApp only backups the most current state of the app and it’s contents.
That means you can’t restore to a previous backup but the latest.

I’m afraid to say you’re out of luck.
