Deleting Zoom Recordings

Updated Sep 21, 2021

It is a good practice to delete old or unnecessary Zoom video recordings 2-3 months after the end of a semester in order to save on video storage space costs. You can also save any recordings you'd like to keep for future reference.

See the next article Searching and Saving Zoom Recordings for details on saving Zoom recordings.

There are two methods you can use. Both are equally convenient.  

How to Delete Recordings in Zoom.us (click here to view)

To start, sign into your Zoom account at zoom.us.

As you review videos, you can check any that you wish to delete. You can delete recordings in-bulk, or individually.

Do not delete any recordings for the current semester. These should be kept for 2-3 months after the end of the term.

You'll see a list of your recordings. To delete multiple recordings at once, check the boxes to the left of the unneeded videos, then choose Delete Selected.

To review and delete videos individually, select Delete from the More option to the right of your unneeded video.

How to Delete Recordings in Canvas

Canvas also allows you to review, delete, and save videos. The Zoom.us interface is just a bit more flexible.

Do not delete any recordings for the current semester. These should be kept for 2-3 months after the end of the term.

First, open a previously-taught course in Canvas, then navigate to the Zoom recordings page.
