Backing up ALL Google Data using Google Takeout
Don’t worry. It’s easier than you think. Below are step-by-step instructions backing up of all your Google data, so that you can access them once your Gmail account has been disabled. Following the backup, the contents of the .zip folder can be extracted, and certain aspects can be imported into Microsoft Office 365 Outlook.
There is also a printable PDF document if you prefer to work from a paper copy.
If you have an extremely large Google Drive, please clean it up by deleting any files you no longer need, or exporting any files in Microsoft Office format into your individual filestore on your device or into OneDrive, deleting any files you have successfully copied across. This will minimise the number of files going through the conversion process, and will make the archive process quicker.
Due to data size and required storage space, we recommend you follow this process on your laptop or desktop using the web browser of your choosing (Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer etc.)
