I've since learnt that all those msgstore-xxxxx.crypt12 files are unnecessary, only the one without a date and (or?) the one with the most recent date in the file name. So feel free to delete those. I delete them all the time these days since they take up so much memory.

Is there any way to stop WhatsApp from making/keeping so many versions of this file? I keep deleting old versions, but it would be nice if they got deleted automatically once a new version was made

Try this app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.thedarken.sdm

You may have to pay for the full version for the necessary feature.

(I didn't, so don't take my word for it. However I think that the app cleaner function should do the trick.)

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Then either make it smaller or split it in parts
