Information on Penn Zoom Recordings

Modified on Wed, 29 Sep 2021 at 04:26 PM

Beginning Wednesday, January 20, 2021, recordings stored in PennZoom that are older than 120 days will be deleted from Zoom’s cloud storage. 

Important Notes: 

  • Once a recording is in your trash bin, you have 30 days to retrieve it for personal storage. Instructions for recovering recordings from your trash bin can be found on Zoom's "How to Recover Deleted Cloud Recordings" page.  

  • Going forward, recordings will continue to be moved into your trash bin as they hit 121 days of age. 

          For example, a recording made on October 15, 2020 will be moved to trash on February 12, 2021, and deleted permanently on March 14, 2021. 

  • All important recordings should continue to be downloaded and saved to alternative storage solutions within their 120-day retention period. 

Please note that existing recordings in Panopto will NOT be affected by this change.  PennZoom classroom recordings initiated from within Canvas will continue to automatically be moved into Panopto for long-term storage
