    This is a shot in the dark but back in July a very gracious member helped me to recover some footage I had shot but forgot to stop recording when I shut down my Phantom. Well, I did that again and need that clip recovered. Hopefully he will see this and respond. He was very helpful and I really appreciated that.

    Thanks,

    Danny

    Put the MicroSD card back in the Phantom and power cycle. It should close out the file.

    I did exactly what you said and the file came back to life !!

    This was an important file. I produce a weekly sportfishing show for FOX Sports West and we had just come back from British Columbia with lots of King Salmon footage. Would have hated to lose this one.

    Thanks so much !!

    Good to hear. One of our two homes is in Rancho Santa Margarita. Always happy to help a local :)
