Important notes on Zoom storage
Please read the following “Zoom retention arrangement” carefully. Recording files that exceed the retention period will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. It is advised to download and backup the required files on your own.
Zoom and Panopto are integrated systems that provide a large storage space for Zoom recordings and facilitate easier sharing through Panopto and Moodle.
- All Zoom recording will be transferred from Zoom Cloud storage to Panopto’s “My Folder” -> “Meeting Recordings” folder. Please also refer to the Panopto retention policy.
- After the Zoom recordings are transferred to the Panopto, it will be moved to Zoom’s “Trash”. Recordings in the “Trash” will be kept for 30 days before being permanently deleted.
- Files manually recovered from the Zoom “Trash” box will be retained for 3 months and then permanently deleted.
Backup your files
As Panopto serves as the main storage of the Zoom meeting recordings, it is advised to download and backup your important meeting recording files through Panopto from time to time. Please refer to the steps on downloading files here.
