Introduction

In today's digital world, video conferencing has become an essential part of our lives. Zoom is one of the most popular video conferencing applications used worldwide. With its easy-to-use interface and useful features, Zoom has become a go-to platform for virtual meetings, webinars, and classes. One of the great features of Zoom is the ability to record meetings. If you've ever wondered where those recorded Zoom meetings go, this blog post will explain it all.

Introduction to Zoom recordings

Before we dive into where Zoom recordings go, let's first understand what they are. Zoom recordings are a feature that allows you to record your virtual meetings and save them for later viewing. You can choose to record the meeting locally on your computer or save it to the Zoom cloud.

Recording options on Zoom

When you choose to record a Zoom meeting, you have two options: local recording and cloud recording. Local recording saves the meeting to your computer's hard drive, while cloud recording saves it to the Zoom cloud.

Zoom local recording

When you choose to record a meeting locally, the recording will be saved to your computer's hard drive. You can access it through the Zoom desktop client or by navigating to the location where the recording was saved on your computer. It's important to note that if you delete the recording from your computer, it cannot be recovered.

Zoom cloud recording

Cloud recording saves the meeting to the Zoom cloud. You can access the recording by logging into your Zoom account and navigating to the "Recordings" tab. From there, you can download, share, or delete the recording. It's essential to note that cloud recordings will be deleted after 120 days if you do not download or share them.

Accessing recorded Zoom meetings

Once you know where your recorded Zoom meetings are saved, accessing them is easy. Whether you chose to record locally or to the cloud, you can always access the recordings from the Zoom desktop client or by logging into your Zoom account.

Sharing recorded Zoom meetings

You can share your recorded Zoom meetings by sending the file to others or by sharing the cloud link. When sharing the file, make sure it's in a format that the recipient can open. When sharing the cloud link, make sure the person you're sharing it with has access to the meeting.

Deleting recorded Zoom meetings

It's always a good practice to delete any recordings you no longer need. You can delete a recording from the Zoom desktop client or from the "Recordings" tab on your Zoom account. It's important to note that deleted recordings cannot be recovered.

Security concerns with recorded Zoom meetings

When recording a Zoom meeting, it's essential to consider security concerns. If you're recording sensitive information, make sure only authorized personnel have access to the recording. It's also a good idea to password protect the recording or limit who can access it.

Recording Retention Policies

It's important to note that Zoom has retention policies in place for cloud recordings. By default, cloud recordings will be stored for up to 120 days. However, if you need to retain recordings for longer, you can adjust the retention policy in your Zoom settings.

Where Cloud Recordings Are Stored

In addition to local recordings, Zoom also gives you the option to save recordings to the cloud. This can be especially helpful if you don't have a lot of storage space on your device. When you choose to save a recording to the cloud, it will be stored on Zoom's servers.

Best Practices for Recording Meetings

Finally, it's worth discussing some best practices for recording meetings on Zoom. This includes obtaining consent from all participants before recording, making sure that everyone is aware that the meeting is being recorded, and being mindful of the potential risks associated with recording sensitive information.

Conclusion

Now that you know where your recorded Zoom meetings go, you can easily access, share, and delete them. Just remember to keep security concerns in mind and only record meetings when necessary. With Zoom's recording feature, you can make sure you never miss a meeting, webinar, or class again.
