    User... Do not create multiple threads on your issue. It actually works against you as any advice gets scattered around and a coherent conversation cannot develop as easily...

    If you need to add additional information or want to post additional questions, please join the site so you can see the reply button and continue the conversation in the same thread you originally made. Please see this link for instructions on how to join Windows Central.


    When you say messages I think of SMS or some other service like Skype, Whatsapp, etc. It might help to clarify what App was used to compose the drafts.

    But drafts makes me think of email... So...

    Settings > email + accounts > tap on the account name you are concerned with > toggle "Download email from" away from the "one month" setting (see why I went here?) to "anytime" > note that this might take a loooong time to happen depending on how much stuff you accumulate in your email boxes > your Drafts folder should then show you a longer history

    are you talking about drafts in the messaging/SMS app or email? or a different service entirely?
