When we accidentally delete messages on Facebook, we try several methods to retrieve them later when we need them. Today I’ll show you one of those methods.
What is com.facebook.orca?
Before I tell you how to recover Facebook deleted messages, let me explain what com.facebook.orca is. com.facebook.orca is a folder similar to com.facebook.katana. You can find both folders in your Android device file manager.
When you install the Facebook Messenger application, it creates the com.facebook.orca folder.
In addition, When you install the Facebook application, it makes the com.facebook.katana folder.
Moreover, the Facebook Lite application generates a com.facebook.lite folder.
There is no way to delete these types of folders permanently. Whenever you launch the application, it automatically creates the folder. Facebook uses these folders to store some data files.
Only a few people notice these types of things. If you already know about these types of folders, let’s strengthen your knowledge by giving information on how to recover deleted Facebook messages with the help of the com.facebook.orca folder.
How to Retrieve Deleted Facebook Messages?
I mentioned that Facebook stores its data in the com.facebook.orca folder, including messages also. So we can use this folder to retrieve deleted Facebook messages. Let’s see how can you do that:
