Conversion of crypt8 files to crypt7 file format

There is no direct way how you can ever convert old WhatsApp CRYPT8 archives to CRYPT7 format. However, the WhatsApp Tri-Crypt program can be run as background process and convert all newer CRYPT8, CRYPT7 and CRYPT 5 archives to the original legacy CRYPT format, which then can be easily extracted with one of the available tools like WhatApp Xtract. More or less obsolete as Whatsapp uses CRYPT12 files now.
