Upcoming Changes to the Storage of AU Zoom Recordings

Information Technology Services is pleased to continue offering Zoom to the campus community. In order to ensure the quality and availability of this service, AU routinely deletes old recordings from our instance of Zoom. This is scheduled twice per year, in July and January. All recordings made prior to December 1, 2021 will be deleted on January 31, 2022. Users are encouraged to examine their recordings and download any items that need to be saved. This routine maintenance will allow us to continue to provide Zoom for virtual classes and meetings. Any questions on this matter can be directed to the ITS Helpdesk. Thank you for your cooperation.
