We are already using several whiteboarding tools and it seems commercially wrong to use Draw.io as well as the other solutions we have.
I'm looking at combining some of our add ons where there is overlap and Draw.io may be one of them.
We have over 700 pages with Draw.io content on them, but if I disable the app, do we then lose the content or will it become just view only?
I will be testing this in a dev environment, but keen to see if there's a quick win before I go down this route!
Any thoughts appreciated.
Fabian's answer is correct. Diagrams are stored as page attachments only, they are not deleted on uninstall.
When you buy an app on server/DC it's a perpetual license. You can use forever the last version released at the date your maintenance expires.
Hi @Paul Wright ,
According to Draw IO support, no data is ever lost. All diagram data is stored as page attachments. Even uninstalling draw.io it does not cause data loss.
Re-installing would make the drawio macros on pages referencing those attachments work again.
FYI. The vendor did respond, and you're correct. The images are attachments.
"no data is ever lost. All diagram data is stored as page attachments. Even uninstalling draw.io it does not cause data loss.

Disabling the apps presents this on every Draw.io image.
When you re-enable, the image returns.
I've not done an uninstall yet, but this behavior does suggest all images are removed if you decide to uninstall.
I will raise the question with the vendor about image retention as there is a lot of work already invested. Sadly, we may end up with several tools as to remove this may be too painful!
It will be great to hear about your experiences.
