    Last day, my telegram was updating for hours and after it was connected, old chat messages disappeared spontaneously and suddenly.
    I’m sure this disorder is from the telegram.
    They are very necessary for me.
    I didn’t delete those messages,
    How can I connect telegram to retrieve my messages ?
    Is there any way ?

      Hello Honey,
      I am sad to tell this but Telegram is saving all messages to its own cloud. If you don’t see those messages it means, they have deleted from cloud storage too. If you even delete your Telegram account, you don’t lose chats because they are saved on that cloud. However once you delete chats on your device, there is no way to take it back. I think same for your situation too. :( Maybe you can give a try to re-installation. If there is any corrupted file, you may clean it and receive your messages back.
