We use a form to upload photos with a report. The report, including photo urls, is recorded in an SPO list. The form upload question has failed. Common advice is to replace the upload question with a new one. However, deleting the failed questions warns, "This question and all previously collected response data for it will be permanently deleted." Losing previously collected photos is not an acceptable option.

Yes, SPO list meant SharePoint Online list
The file that failed in the example below was a 17kB jpg, but a number of different users with different files experience the identical issue.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
The form is selected to "Only people in [your organisation] can respond". It is a group form, I am one of the owners of the form, and of the SP Online site where the list and the photos have been working well for many months.
I have just found that the option to add a file upload question is not available. Perhaps there is a common cause. Any ideas?

Thanks, but I don't think that is the whole story. If you have a form with one owner, results are stored in OneDrive. If you have a group form the results can be filed in SharePoint. To verify that I started a new form in Microsoft Forms (free). File Upload is available.
My questions remain

sorry,I have no more ideas about Ms Form.
In fact,I use form from my own web port to collect files.

Thank you for trying. Best wishes.
Perhaps someone else has some ideas.

To clarify on the deletion behavior for File Upload question - delete question will remove responses in form including respondent name, submission time, etc. But the files stored in SharePoint will not be deleted, they are stored under My files -> Apps -> Microsoft Forms -> Your Form Title -> Your Question Title.

"All previously collected response data" refers only to what is seen in the Responses tab of the form?
That is a relief. I wonder how many others misinterpret that text.
Thanks so much for the clarification.

Does anyone have an idea about the second question:
This issue has repeated. What causes it? and how can it be prevented?
