DroneDeploy Did Not Write Data to SD Card

I recently flew multiple mapping missions on a site with DroneDeploy. When I went to look at the data the following day the only data present was from my last mapping mission and a few videos I took with Litchi at the end of the day.

Prior to the I had flown 160 acres work of mapping data. I have a 64 gig Class 10 SD card in the drone which I have used many times with no issues. What perplexes me is that if the SD Card failed it would have not had any data on it not the last flight.

I flew all the missions from the same take off spot and back to back. Kind of bummed since 2 hours of work is down the drain. Hard to process data you don't have an that record of project progress is lost.

But what I really want to know is why it happened. I have not had any issue with DD before. And why would it start writing to the card after 4 flights.

My bad for not checking the data as I went along. I was pushed for time so I just swapped batteries and kept flying.

Anyone have any idea what my have caused this?

Thanks is advance.
