I was messing around in the app and opened a draft project. I wanted to exit out without any changes, and thought I was being safe by not saving any changes. Now my draft file is gone. Is the project just unrecoverable?

Hi. Thank you for reaching out to DJI Forum. With regards to your inquiry. I am sorry say the draft feature is not implement on the DJI Mimo, Please make sure to save the new projects that you have started so that you can edit them later. Thank you for your valued support.

Your response doesn't make sense. I was literally using a built-in folder called drafts. The messaging was confusing when I exited my draft and it deleted it. I thought I was being safe by not saving any changes. It deleted the draft instead. Please improve your messaging. If there's a way to save projects in another location, then how do I do that?

I just has this problem as well.  Got a draft sitting in the draft folder, looked at it, didn’t want to save any changes and exited and the draft is gone!  Crazy.  The guy who responded obviously either doesn’t speak English well or doesn’t understand how the app works - either way, this should be fixed.

All they need to do is ensure that the draft is always saved and if you want to delete it, you can do so.

The response to your question is just about the most worthless response I have ever read on a forum like this.

I have the same problem. I am furious!!!

The answer given by DJI is ridiculous.

I have been working on a project for several days, saving changes each time I exit the editor. However i didnt want to keep my last changes so I exited the editor without saving changes. Its quite clear that this should mean i could 'exit without saving changes' because THAT IS WHAT IT SAYS on the button! instead its deleted the entire project draft.

If I wanted to delete the project, i would have expected a DELETE project option and then a warning to ask if I was sure.

I am VERY VERY UNHAPPY :-(

I also had the same case today and this made me more furious cos this is my second time typing this feedback cos apparently it was not saved again the first time when I get an error message.

I didn't have this issue just last month when I did a shoot cos after every project a save button is visible, today, i only habe a save as draft option so I did save it. All my projects saved as draft. I took the videos inside attraction places so I didn't really check it as I didn't have the problem just 1 month ago. Now that I am ready to edit my project, I couldn't find any draft in my DJI Mimo at all and not in my phone as well.

How are you going to rectify this DJI? This is very frustrating for creators like me. To redo my projects, ill havr to pay again to go in to those attractions!!!!

Really year after this is still a case?

How the hell after clicking “Exit without save” can delete anything?! This is ridiculous...

Second thing... when I accidentally press Exit why I do not have option to cancel, only Exit with save or not?

I was working on a video for days and now all of a sudden it says draft damaged and only gives me an option to delete it! How can I recover this video I worked so hard on?? None of the original files have been deleted off my phone so I don’t understand??

I can't believe the amount of work I put in it's happened to me twice working 4 to 3 hours editing a video and then you look at it and you save it and then you look at it again and you don't do anything and you sit at you exit without saving and then it just delete your goddamn video I mean what a joke you spend thousand dollars on a drone and another hundred dollars on a Gimbal and you get this software that comes with it and it works except for the fact that it delete your goddamn videos

What the fuck is that supposed to mean that draft feature is not implemented on mimo app of course it is you guys have it on there it says draft that means it's implemented do you know the English language what you're saying why would you fucking delete somebody's video if I exit without saving

It's so sad to me the DJI has dropped the ball anybody in the world who uses any kind of editing software knows that when you have a project saved and you make a change like the color of the font on the title and you decide at the end of adjusting that that you don't want it and you exit without saving everybody knows that the software doesn't go back and delete your previously saved edit of that video and or corrupt the file when it becomes unusable so basically DJI has created software this for a child and maybe there should be a disclaimer that says this software is not intended for series users and editors of video footage it's so sad that we spend thousands of dollars on these drones and Gimbels and you guys give us this sad excuse for video editing software you really dropped the ball and you need to go back and rework that video saving portion there needs to be a disclaimer that says Exit without saving will cause your video to be deleted and corrupted DJI I'm talking to you

That cookie cutter response back from DJI is not acceptable and of course the draft features implemented on there that's why in the upper right hand corner there's a little file folder and that has all the drafts in it get it right DJI you created software that's made for children but you're selling drones and hardware at adult prices you cannot delete people ... simply by the push of one button
