Cache files accumulated on your mobile device not only take up valuable storage space but also may affect the app’s performance, even resulting in DJI Fly app not working or crashing. So clear cache on the DJI Fly app is essential for all DJI drone pilots.
In this article, we will show you how to easily clear cache on DJI Fly app and free up some space on your phone. You will also learn more useful information about DJI cache files.
What are DJI cache files and why do they matter?
Cache files are temporary data that the app stores on your phone to improve its speed and functionality. For example, when you record a video with your DJI Mini 2, DJI Mini 3, or other DJI drones, the DJI Fly app will save a low-resolution copy of the video on your phone as a proxy file.
This allows you to preview the video on your phone without downloading the full-resolution file from the drone’s SD card. Similarly, when you view your flight records on the app, the app will save some flight data on your phone as a cache file. This allows you to access your flight records offline and sync them with DJI later.
However, cache files can also have some drawbacks. They can take up a lot of storage space on your phone, especially if you record a lot of videos or fly frequently. They can also become corrupted or outdated, which can cause errors or glitches in the app.
So, it is advisable to clear the cache files on the DJI Fly app regularly to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
