Whatsapp does daily backups of its messages database and keeps them stored on your phone.

Over time these multiples backups may end up eating many if not hundreds of megabytes!

If you have a phone with fixed, non-expandable storage may want to safely delete these backups.
Most "all-in-one" cleaner apps doesn't take care of these big files.


This routine does exactly that: Deletes old backups leaving just the one of the day in course and the raw database file; everything else in /Whatsapp/Databases is deleted.


You can *automate* this task or run it manually by installing a shortcut on your phone's desktop.


**NOTE** Until I can improve it, DO NOT RUN THIS TASK between 00:00 AM and 02:00 AM since it will delete your "current day" database, until Whatsapp does the daily backup and creates the new file.
