Zoom cloud recording storage cleanup to start Jan. 11

Posted by on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 in News.

When you record a meeting in Zoom, you have the option to save that recording to the Zoom cloud. However, Vanderbilt’s cloud storage with Zoom is limited and was never intended to be a long-term storage location, as the university has many other storage options available.

Beginning Jan. 11, 2021, Vanderbilt will save Zoom cloud recordings for a maximum of 90 days. As a result, on Jan. 11 all cloud recordings made prior to Oct. 13, 2020, will be deleted from Zoom’s cloud storage, and recordings will continue to be deleted on a 90-day rolling basis. This will include recordings from meetings and webinars.

Please review your Zoom cloud recordings as soon as possible. If you have recordings that you would like to keep, download and save them to one of the many alternative storage locations available to you (instructions below).
