change the save directory


Zoom saves the meetings in C:\Users\mrkr9\Documents\Zoom\,


I need it to be in another directory. How is it done?

Hi @Ccastillo 

In the client settings, under the Recording tab, you can change the default location of where your local recordings are saved.

Be sure to not set the default location to a cloud syncing folder (such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or One Drive), an external drive, or network storage device, as that may cause issues with saving and converting the local recording. Zoom strongly recommends keeping the default location on a local drive for recordings.


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
