Local recording allows users to record meeting video and audio locally to a computer. The recorded files can be uploaded to Google Drive where UNC Asheville has unlimited storage space. Local recording and Google Drive storage is recommended due to storage limitations and cost of Zoom Cloud storage. This article describes 'starting a local recording', 'uploading files and folders to Google drive', and 'sharing files from Google drive'.
Starting a Local Recording
The host must record the meeting or grant the ability to record to a participant.
Start a Zoom meeting as the host.
Click the option to Record. If there is a menu, select Record on this Computer.
Hosts and participants will see a recording indicator in the top-left corner while recording is active.
After the meeting has ended, Zoom will convert the recording so you can access the files. Note: Do not interrupt this process. Leave the computer powered on through this process.
Once the conversion process is complete, the folder containing the recording files will open.
- If the meeting unexpectedly shuts down or if the conversion process is interrupted, the recording files could become corrupted and non-recoverable. Restarting or shutting down your computer, putting the hard disk to sleep, or closing your laptop will interrupt the conversion process.
- If the conversion process is not successful after the meeting has ended, you can try to convert the files again by navigating to the recording location and double clicking the recording files.

Upload Files and Folders to Google Drive
You can upload, view, share, and edit files with Google Drive. When you upload a file to Google Drive, it will take up space in your Drive, even if you upload to a folder owned by someone else.
|Upload & View Files|
On your computer, you can upload from drive.google.com. You can upload files into private or shared folders.
|Drag Files into Google Drive|
Share files from Google Drive
When you share from Google Drive, you can control whether people can edit, comment on, or only view the file.
- On a computer, go to Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides.
- Click the file you want to share.
- Click Share or .
|Share with Specific People|
If you use a Google Account through work or school, you might not be able to share files outside of your organization.
|Share a Link to the File|
You can send other people a link to your file so anyone on the internet with the link can use it. When you share a link to a file, your name will be visible as the owner of the file.
