Restore Panopto Videos from Archive Status (How-To)


Panopto videos that receive no views within a 13-month period are automatically placed in an archived status to preserve space for active content. However, archived content may be restored by the creator of the video, or anyone who originally had permission to view the content. Once the restoration request is made, the content is generally available in 36 to 48 hours.
