UCL has been running Moodle for a long time, and the platform has evolved and been updated to match the growing needs and expectations of staff and students. Each time Moodle is updated, most of the content from previous versions is retained. But sometimes older content needs to be updated or removed altogether, to ensure that Moodle continues to run smoothly and can make the most of its new functionality. Currently, some files uploaded to courses (that were first created in earlier versions of Moodle), are stored in an outdated way, which will not be compatible with, or supported by, newer versions of Moodle.

Hence, these so-called 'Legacy course files' need to be removed from courses. Any such files that are still in use however, will need to be downloaded and saved elsewhere before being added/uploaded again into their respective courses. This will ensure that they remain accessible to appropriate course users.
