Does Ring automatically delete videos?

Ring LLC manufactures intelligent home devices to guard people’s home security. With video doorbells, alarm systems, and cameras, users can know who is visiting from recorded videos.

Similar to backing up PC to cloud, Ring saves the recorded videos in the cloud storage space, allowing users to check, share, and delete.

Ring has suggested that users download the videos to their local storage devices before they are deleted automatically.

However, many users are still facing video loss from Ring. No matter whether they have downloaded the videos to their local devices.

It also offers customized video storage selections from at least 1 day to 180 days. After 180 days, the videos will be permanently removed.

Then, can you recover deleted Ring videos?

Is it possible to recover accidentally deleted Ring videos?

Simply put, it depends on the location of the Ring videos.

  On the Cloud storage space (Server).

  On the local storage devices (your computer/external hard drives/SD card/flash drives).

Since the videos are kept on the Ring’s Server to protect users’ privacy by default, users cannot recover the videos after deletion. But things will be different if the videos have been downloaded to your local hard disks.

With proper and advanced tools, users can recover permanently deleted videos from local devices. Check out the detailed guide below.
