Why Vimeo Videos Get Deleted?

Vimeo videos can be deleted in two ways. The first situation is that Vimeo deleted your videos due to its different kinds of membership. As an ordinary membership, you can only upload up to 5GB videos in total and 500MB per week. If you want to upload more videos to Vimeo, you should upgrade to a more advanced membership. Otherwise, when the uploaded videos excel the size limit of the current plan, Vimeo will move the extra videos to their archives and delete them later after one year. Therefore, please make sure you have enough space on Vimeo before uploading videos. Alternatively, you can upgrade your membership or delete unwanted videos. Moreover, think twice before the leap. You should think twice before you delete videos on Vimeo.
