Where are Teams Meeting Recordings Stored?

Teams Meeting Recordings in Microsoft Teams are stored in different locations depending on whether the meeting was a channel meeting or not. To find out where your recorded meetings are stored, keep reading!

Location for channel meetings

Teams meeting recordings for channel meetings are stored in the Files tab within the specific channel. This means that when you record a meeting, a dedicated folder called “Recordings” is automatically created in the Files tab of that particular channel.

The channel’s Files tab itself is located within the SharePoint site associated with that team. So, to find and access recorded meetings for a specific channel, simply navigate to the desired team, then go to the respective channel and click on the “Files” tab.

There you will find the “Recordings” folder containing all your recorded meetings for that particular channel.

Location for all other meetings

For meetings conducted outside of a channel environment, such as 1-on-1 calls and multi-person chats, the recordings can be found in the “Recordings” folder in OneDrive. This means that if you initiated the recording, you will have access to it in your OneDrive account.

Regular meetings not scheduled in a Teams Channel are also stored in this folder. So if you’re looking for meeting recordings that didn’t take place within a specific channel, head over to the “Recordings” folder in your OneDrive to find them.

Changes in recording storage and permissions

Teams meeting recordings in Microsoft Teams have undergone changes in terms of storage and permissions. Previously, meeting recordings were stored within the Microsoft Stream platform, but as of August 30th, 2021, they are now saved in either OneDrive for Business or SharePoint.

This shift in storage location brings about important considerations for file management, data migration, and collaboration tools.

With the new storage location, channel meetings have a designated Recordings folder found within the Files tab. This makes it easier to organize and locate recorded meetings specific to a channel.

For all other meetings outside of channels, they will be stored in the ‘Recordings’ folder on the organizer’s OneDrive for Business or SharePoint account.

These changes not only impact where Teams meeting recordings are kept but also provide improved options for managing recording settings and permissions. Users can configure who has access to view or download meeting recordings based on their sharing permissions.

These configuration options allow for better control over meeting management while ensuring data privacy is maintained.
