Zoom Cloud-Recordings Retention Plan

NEW! Effective February 27, 2023

Zoom Video Cloud Recording links made after February 27 will remain functional for a total of 3 months with permanent copies of the linked videos automatically saved to Kaltura and available through MediaSpace.

For Cloud Recordings recorded between May 3, 2021 - February 27, 2023

  • AFTER 1.25 YEARS: ALL cloud-recorded Zoom video will be automatically moved to Zoom Trash 1.25 years after creation. Once a video has been moved to Zoom Trash, it will remain there for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • BEFORE 1.25 YEARS: You may manually remove any of your own cloud-recorded Zoom video that is less than 1.25 years old. The removed video will be stored in your Zoom Trash for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • RECOVERY: At this time we do not have a method to restore permanently-deleted video. However, if you would like to keep a Zoom-recorded video longer than 1.25 years, we ask that you instead download the Zoom video recording (.mp4 file) and other associated files (audio transcript .vvt file, audio only .mp4 file, etc.) to your computer and upload all to Kaltura.
