I was trying to delete cache memory files but accidentally deleted my flight history. Is there any way of getting it back? On a Galaxy S7 running 7.0 Android.

You'll only be able to get them back if you previously synced your flight logs in DJI GO like this:


If you did that, then just sync them again to restore them on your mobile device.

I just synched it for the first time (after the deletion) and of course it just came back with nothing. Yes I am an idiot. It still has my "1" experience point on there though LOL

On the subject of flight records, I selectively delete them if I have overridden a warning regarding location (there's an abandoned dirt strip airport near to a favorite launch site) or altitude.
In the event of needing to request DJI Care or repair, are they going to look askance at the deleted records and deny a claim based on the missing records?

Don't know why you would want to save those files - they take up space on your phone/tablet. Does anyone out there keep those files, please tell me why...

Flight history might come in handy if you want to see what route you took on a certain fllght, to find an object of interest or something. Also if you want to know what your longest or highest flight was, or other similar information. Maybe trivial to some but could come in handy one day.

Old thread - but I have read some insurance companies demand the flight records for third party claims... some countries you need third party to fly, I believe.
