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 > Manage repositories.
  2. Check the legacyfilesinnewcourses box in the Manage repositories common settings 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.
