Sentry Mode will still alert without a drive. Tesla has said they are storing clips for a couple days (for learning purposes), but it doesn't appear there is a way for the customer to access them at this time.I removed the usb and drove to work. When I check the app an hour later it says sentry mode active but I have not reinstalled the drive? Is it possible that they are streaming to the cloud???
Could be that it's a recent change, I've never tested it without a drive. But good to know it still works and hopefully someday we can get clips from the cloud.When I approached the car and pulled the handle (without my phone) I still got the big red "eye" saying you are being recorded... I don't remember the system working like this before.

The only Sentry footage saved in the car’s memory is from an Sentry alarm event, not regular Sentry events.
The comment about Sentry not recording anything isn’t quite right.
The dashcam only records while parked if Sentry Mode is enabled.
My dashcam doesn’t continue to record once I’ve left the car (unless Sentry Mode is enabled), but the car doesn’t go to sleep immediately. I’ve looked at the footage and there’s nothing being recorded in my garage after I leave the car.
I'd argue that my car is working correctly, and it's the others that aren't.
I just reviewed the latest dashcam footage from my Model S (in RecentClips), which is from my last drive 2 days ago. That footage ends after arriving home, about 25 seconds after we got out of the car. According to TeslaFi, the car didn't sleep until 43 minutes later. I have build 2021.4.12.
Maybe some of the people with footage from their garage have Sentry Mode enabled and don't realize it. Maybe it's something else. I don't often look at the dashcam footage, but when I do, I've never had lots of footage from inside my garage.
