Note: This page only applies to sites which have been upgraded from Moodle 1.9.

In Moodle 2.0 onwards, files are stored in separate areas, rather than together in the course files area. See Course files for a detailed explanation. When a site is upgraded from 1.9, the course files area is renamed 'Legacy course files'. By default, this area is not available in new courses.

It is recommended that teachers make use of the new repositories in Moodle 2.0 for storing course files, rather than saving them in the legacy course files area.

Enabling legacy course files areas

To enable a legacy course files area in a new course

  1. Enable the legacy course files repository plugin in Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Repositories > Common repository settings.
  2. Check the Legacy course files in new courses box then click the 'Save changes' button.
  3. Set 'Legacy course files' to Yes in the course settings.

A legacy course files link will then appear in the Settings > Course administration area.

Repository permissions

This repository is accessible by default to administrators, course creators, teachers, editing teachers and managers, but not to guests or students. This capability can be changed to control access to users with specific roles.
