Should I use Zoom Cloud recording or Local recording for my meetings? How do I access my Zoom Local recordings?

Zoom Cloud recordings only provide a limited amount of storage space. It is recommended that you use Local recordings so all of your meetings are stored on your computer for safe keeping. You can then share your recordings by uploading them to U-M Google Drive or Box. Instructors also have the option to add them to the Media Gallery of their Canvas course site for students to view, similar to uploading Kaltura Capture videos.

By default, all Local recordings will be placed in the Zoom folder at the following file paths:

  • Windows: C:\Users\User Name\Documents\Zoom
  • Mac OS: /Users/User Name/Documents/Zoom
