Zoom: Recording and Uploading Meetings

Before You Start

Open your File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac) to make sure you can see OneDrive - University of Tennessee. If you do not have OneDrive set up, contact the Service Desk at 901.448.2222 for assistance.

Step 1: Mapping the Recording

We DO NOT recommend you save meeting recordings to the Zoom Cloud for two reasons.

  1. The Zoom Cloud is NOT HIPAA-compliant like OneDrive and SharePoint.  Even if you think no one is going to mention HIPAA, FERPA, PII, etc. information, better safe than sorry.
  2. Recordings in the Zoom Cloud are generally deleted after 120 days.  You don’t want to save a recording there, only to find it gone when you need it.
