The Lesley University Kaltura My Media storage policy has recently been updated. Due to this change, Kaltura media content that has not been played within 5 years will be deleted from Kaltura. 


Users with content up for deletion will receive an email entitled Kaltura My Media Video Deletion. Emails will be sent 30 days and 5 days prior to content deletion. The email will list all the titles of all videos. 


Users can play the Kaltura media content to cancel the deletion process or they can download the content to save it elsewhere. Below are steps that will allow users to search for the specific videos by title to play them and remove them from the deletion queue.
