Recover Tesla dashcam videos
How to recover deleted or lost Tesla car dashcam videos

The increasing popular Tesla car ha smany high tech features including 4 dash cams. These can be recorded onto a USB memry stick. If accidently deleted, GPR software will recover the files.

Typically (if I understand this correctly) the Tesla will record about 1 hour of video in a circular buffer. This means after the the hour is up, it will start overwriting the start of the buffer again. If you wish to permenantly save the last 10 minutes, videos can be saved on a Tesla when in Sentry mode and controlled by tapping the Dashcam icon at the top right of the screen.

Each video is saved as a 1 minute file, approximately 30MB in length, one for each camera.

Recovery with GPR is very simple. Just insert the memory chip into your PC, start GPR, select the memory chip, and press <<Recover all files>>. The file names will not be original, but the date and time will be correct.

What is not possible. With a memory chip, once a file has been overwritten it can not be recovered. Thus if the 1 hour loop has been overwritten, such data is lost.
