How to Move or Delete Zoom Recordings

Zoom provides space for short-term storage of recorded meetings and classes, but it should not be used as a permanent storage solution. Use the following methods to free up space on your Zoom account.

Begin by logging in to your Zoom portal at Choose “Sign in” then log in with your Trinity credentials, e.g. “” and password.

Click Recordings in the left menu, then “Cloud Recordings” to see a list of what is currently saved in your Zoom cloud.

In the far right column, you will see a “More” button with options to either delete or download. If you don’t think you will need the recording in the future, you can choose delete.

Note that if you click on the highlighted title of the recording you can see details about the recording and review its content.

When you choose “Download” you will get a batch of files: one or more video files, an audio file, and a .vtt file, which is the closed captions. If you are saving several meeting recordings, it may help to organize these batches into separate folders on your desktop as you download them.
