If you need to download your documents from a previously used Google Drive account, you may run into trouble. When you download individual files you will notice that they are still in Google’s proprietary format which is not able to be opened in other programs. In addition, it can be tedious and time consuming to download all of your documents one by one. Fortunately, Google offers a way to resolve this quick and easily through their service called Takeout. This process is also useful if you simply want to create a backup of your documents before closing your Google account.

  5. Click on the toggle button with an ‘X’ to select ‘Drive’.
  6. Click the down arrow next to drive to select options related to it. These options control the format the documents will be downloaded in as well as what folders of your Drive are download.

  8. The default settings are fine. Note: Although there is a choice to have it saved to OneDrive, this is not save to OneDrive for Business and should not be used.
  9. Click ‘Create archive’.
  10. Depending upon how much information needs to be archived, it may take a few minutes, you will receive an email when the process has completed, there is no need to wait or watch the archive process.
  11. Once you receive the email that your archive has finished, follow the link within the email to the archive.
  12. Select the ‘Download’ button next to the archive you wish to download.
  13. If you are simply downloading a backup of the information before closing your Google account, you are done, store this archive in a safe and secure location. If you are  going to move this archive to your OneDrive for Business Iona account, follow the next steps.
