Hello there,
How to make a program that reads WhatsApp messages, copy the added multimedia files sent to different folders named with the same name of each corresponding WhatsApp contact?
Thank you very much for your help

What code have you written to start this?
What are you stuck on?

Because...we out here are not going to write the whole thing for you.

Software development doesn't work like that.

If you have zero experience, we can't just suggest javascript/rust/C++/perl/python/whatever...and say "Go forth and write something to interact with WhatsApp".

Thank for your answer, I know a very little about coding, for example: that you need to install a special environment to load and run your coding (Java Run Environment to load and execute application of Java Virtual Machine). And take a short online beginner python course.
Anyway, thank you very much for your attention.
 
There is another point of view of what you want to do. Even if you know "how to code" and write software, you also must know where WhatApp keeps the data, how it is stored / encoded / encrypted, and in many cases this is the difficult part. I would even say that if this information was freely available, someone would already write such an app.
