Sentry said car alarm went off, but video was corrupted and no signs of damage?

    So sentry told me my car alarm went off this morning.

    Except when I checked, found nothing wrong.

    And all of the videos from that time event (plus a few more earlier than evening) are corrupted (all 595 bytes). All my other videos, including ones later that day are fine. I'm using a 500 GB Samsung T5 SSD

    was it just a glitch in the sentry system? I find it really odd that the videos corrupted simultaneously with the alarm.

    I had the same thing happen to me a couple of days ago. The alarm went off for the first time while at work, didn't notice it until the end of my shift, I looked all over the car and saw nothing amiss or damaged. When I looked at the videos, they were all small files and corrupted. I just thought that I had something wrong with my SSD I had plugged in, and the videos from several days prior were all similarly corrupted. Still not sure if it was my SSD or something wrong with the Tesla software.

    Tesla cam and sentry mode are all screwy due to the recent firmware updates.
