Google Takeout Instructions


It may take a long time for files to be copied, so make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to do this. You are also limited in the number of “takeouts” you are able to do in a 24-hour period. We recommend using the download link to retrieve your files. It doesn’t hurt to have a backup of it as well on a USB Drive or another hard drive in case you need to retrieve it in the future!

Create an archive of your data

First, choose which products to include

  1. Visit the Download your data page and sign in to your Google Account.
  2. Choose which Google products to include in your download. To see more details and options for a product, select the down arrow.

  4. Choose your archive's "File type." Note: We recommend using .zip format for best compatibility between devices and operating systems.


Next, choose how your archive is delivered

When your archive is created by using one of these options, we'll email you a link to its location. Depending on the amount of information in your account, this process could take a few minutes or several hours. Most people get the link to their archive the same day that they request it.
