Zoom recording retention: Important changes on Dec. 22

Zoom recordings from this semester have over-filled our available Zoom cloud storage. The solution is for Zoom class session recordings to be saved to a tool called Panopto (see below)  in your future semesters. To address the storage capacity, we will be reducing the time period on recordings in Zoom Cloud Recording from 120 days to 60 days. Beginning on December 22, 2020, Zoom Cloud Recordings will only be available for 60 days. Recordings prior to October 23rd, 2020, will be deleted. 

What do I need to do if I want to save my Zoom cloud recordings for my course?

Please move any course recordings to Panopto as soon as possible since they are an academic record under FERPA rules. If you have downloaded your Zoom recordings to your computer, you can still move them into Panopto.  If you already have your course Zoom recordings going into the Panopto meetings folder, you don’t need to do anything else because they already are being saved.   

What do I need to do if I want to save my other Zoom cloud recordings?
If you do not want to use Panopto or do not have a Canvas course site where both are enabled, you also may download the cloud recordings, then save them on your computer or into Google Drive or One Drive

Where do my Zoom recordings go when they are deleted?
They will go into the trash, where they will be available for 30 days.  You can get them back by using this process

What do I need to do going forward to save my Zoom class recordings?
Make sure you have your course recordings going into Panopto, and reference the Panopto links in Canvas for students.

Please email us at with your questions.
