Losing Data using Patch and bad internet

We work in remote areas where internet goes in an out.  problem is if we start a patch using internet and loose before it finishes, we loose records from the collection being sent when it does come back.  how do i check to make sure everything was stored? it does throw an error when this happens.

Collections are temporary, with the internet status, you need offline. Check this video:

Thanks.  i am using SaveData and Load Data already.  but issues is while running the Patch, and you loose internet and it comes back and then off and back.  it will not Patch all of items in the collection.  


i see there is a success collection to capture a return, but nothing show you how to check if they match and what happens if they don't.  Other than check row counts how do see whats missing.


The IsEmpty in the formula is supposed to check if all the items in the collection has been patched. Those not saved will be retained for subsequent saving. Can you show your formula

First i get a list of the newly created items in a collection called NewITems, then i compare that collection to the original collection. and get list of those that are not part of the Newly Create Items.


ClearCollect(FoundMisingFromUpload,Filter(colSQLphotos,Not(PhotoName in newItem.PhotoName)))

just bad internet when patching data is losing lost items.  Tried Flow, and it is worse for lost data records with where internet looses signal during process.
