Screen Recording

Record screen content of Remote Control sessions
Record and save all remote control sessions with the host. Sessions will automatically be recorded and saved to the defined location. No other action is required.
Automatically convert to .AVI format
Save session recordings as AVI files; otherwise files are saved as RCREC, a LogMeIn proprietary format. File size is similar for both recording types.
Tip: To convert RCREC recordings manually, open LogMeIn on the host and go to Options > Preferences > Advanced Settings > Screen Recording > Convert RCREC Files to AVI....
Location of video files
Specify a folder on the host where screen recordings are saved. Leave blank to use the default location: LogMeIn installation directory, typically C:\Program Files\LogMeIn\x86.
Delete old files if folder size exceeds
Automatically delete the oldest archived RCREC remote control recordings when the total size of all RCREC recordings in the Location of video files exceeds the defined value. AVI files are not counted toward the limit and will not be deleted.
