Below are instructions for backing up your Google data, so that you can access the data once your Loughborough Google account has been disabled.
Instructions can be viewed (Video); printed out (PDF), or followed step-by-step on the page below. Choose whichever format you prefer.
When you have completed this process, return to the Returners homepage for instructions on importing key components into Microsoft Office 365.
Please note - your Contacts cannot be backed up using this method, separate instructions are available here.
TIP: If your Google Drive has a lot stored in it, delete any files you no longer need before starting the google Takeout process.
