Did you know? Google Take Out

Did you know that you can backup information from your Google account?  If you are interested in backing up your data, which I would highly recommend, simply perform the following:

  • login to your Google account using the Google Chrome browser
  • Click on your profile, then 'My Account'
  • Under the Personal info & Privacy section, click on 'Control your Content'
  • Under the 'Download your Data' click on 'Create Archive'
  • At this point, you can turn on the services that you want to back up, then click 'Next'

The next screen will be shown, giving you a summary of services you want to archive and prompting you a delivery of the data, either send a downloadable link via email, or add to drive.  

Finally click on the 'Create archive' button to start archiving your information.  

You will receive an email with a link to your archived information or you will have a folder on your Google Drive called, 'Take out' that contains a zip file in it.
