What is Google Takeout?
Why do I need it?
Ready to export/download a copy of your Google Drive/Google Apps files?
- Go to https://www.google.com/takeout
- Be sure you are logged in as your student Google account
- Select All or select the data you wish to include
- Click Next
- Choose your preferred file type (.zip) and delivery method (email)
- Click Create Archive
Zip files can be opened on almost any computer. Archives larger than 2GB will be split into multiple .zip files.
After Google finishes creating your archive, they'll email you a link so you can download it to your personal device. You will have one week to retrieve your archive.
You do not have to stay on the download page if you check the option “Email me when ready” which will notify you when the zip file is available. This may take awhile depending on the amount of data you have stored.
