DJI Drones – How To Update File Index Mode – Continuous VS Reset

DJI series drones like the Inspire, Phantom, or Mavic have two options regarding what the file names will be for videos and photos. The two options are referred to as the File Index Mode.

  1. Reset: When files are moved off of the SD card the next videos and photos will be saved with file names starting at DJI_001.
  2. Continuous: When files are moved off of the SD card the next videos and photos will be saved with file names starting after the last file name of the removed files.

It is the user’s preference which option to use. However, Continuous is usually the best option because you will not overwrite previous files that have been moved to your computer.
