Tap the “Save as Draft” option at the bottom of the “Share” screen to save your Instagram Reels as a draft.  Your Reels have been successfully saved as a draft for a later upload.

How Can I Recover My Drafts on Instagram?

Sadly, Instagram doesn’t offer a way to recover deleted reel drafts on Instagram. Once deleted, they are permanently lost. You can no longer recover them.

However, within 30 days, deleted Instagram posts, stories, IGTV videos, and reels can be recovered using the Recently Deleted option. However, once discarded, draft posts or reels cannot be retrieved.

Where is the Reel Draft Saved on Instagram?

When you save Instagram Reels as a draft, the saved Reels will show up with all of the other Reels you have previously uploaded on the Reels area of your profile. However, you can tell the difference between the Reels you have uploaded and those saved as drafts because the latter will be found in the “Drafts” folder.
