in this article I’m going to tell you how to download data from Google account like your emails, Contacts, Google drive, play books and so on, it helps to keep a backup of your data, let’s see the steps.
I am already signed in to my Gmail account, go to settings and click on “Accounts and import”. Under “Change account settings” the third option is “Other Google Account settings” click on it, here is my account page, it’s a bit lengthy but there is another way to “My Account” for that you need to click on this profile picture of your account in the right-hand corner, here, and select “My Account” “Personal info & Privacy”.
Click on it and from here you need to go to “control your content” here you can see “Download your data”. Create an archive with a copy of your data from Google products the data will be in an archive form, click on Create archive. Here are some different Google products if you don’t want any product to download then uncheck that I need only the “email” and “bookmarks”. So I’ll uncheck rest of all, hit the next. I select two products and that is mentioned here.
Download File Type
File type zip, few another file type like .tgz and .tbz basically we used zip format and I also suggest it. Select a delivery method you will receive an email with a link to download the archive, if you select the first this option which is “send download link via email” you can select Google drive also, If you choose drop box or one drive then the archive will upload on them and you have to simply download from your online storage. For that, you should have an account at ‘one drive’ or ‘drop box’. I don’t have any, so I select send download link via email, this one the first option.
One more point keeps in mind that if you are planning to delete the Google account it will be good to create one drive or drop box account and save the archive on that. Because when you delete the Google account the Gmail and one drive data will also erase so the one drive or drop box will be helpful in that situation click on create archive it will take a long time depend on the data you have, finally it’s done, hit the download re-enter your password and sign in when you click on sign in the downloading process will start. I will open the email also for that. Let’s go to inbox. This is the email, open it and you can see the download button. You can also download the zip file from here.
