Hello @ronrbev 


This is actually pretty are to do because there are multiple variable involved.  


what options do you have for your cloud recordings?  Active Speaker, Gallery View, Shared Content,  Transcript, Audio only, etc.


In the meeting itself, how many people were im the meeting, was content shared, was the content a streaming video, was full screen used or a resized window, was this 1080, 720, etc.


Every recording will be different.  Best answer is try and see.  If you surpass your cloud storage capacity your recording will not be interrupted, it will still record in full; you just will be prevented from starting a new recording until you have freed up space or added more storage.
