Hi guys,

Last night there was a server hiccup and when I came back into my  
scene in the morning the current Alembic camera file was corrupted.  
What puzzles me is that the file modified date hasn't changed. However  
now I cannot open this Alembic camera in a fresh Houdini scene or in  

I don't know if Houdini tries to update the file for some reason but  
you would think that all it's doing is reading the Alembic only.

We are on Windows and I'm using Houdini 16.5.323.

Later today they warned us the server would go down for 5 sec. When I  
came back to my computer another camera was corrupted. Have you ever  
heard of such a thing?
