Cloud recordings retention policy

Zoom recordings will be retained for 120 days from the date of recording. OIT strongly recommends routine review and archiving of Zoom recordings to make sure you keep what you need. Learn how to run a report to view your recordings over a period of time. Please note that once content has been removed it can not be recovered.


Remember to update your Zoom client to take advantage of new features.
