Now that you’ve gotten a chance to see how this process works, please follow the set of procedures below:

Using a desktop or laptop computer:

Insure that you are logged out of any other google account.  Open Google Take out by clicking the following link - https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout and you’ll see a page that looks similar to below.  Choose Select None. Then manually select Drive, Mail and any other Google tools that you might want to save data from. Then select Next at the bottom of the page.


Partway down this next page, select Archive size.  Change to 50GB. Near the bottom of the page, under Delivery method, make certain that Send download link via email is selected. Then Select Create Archive.  Despite the message that it could take some time, it normally won’t take very long.  Go to your google student mail.

In your email, find the recent message Google Download Your Data.  You can forward this email to a personal email account to save the download for later or download your data directly to your laptop or desktop.


Once you have downloaded the data – All items in your school Google Drive will be saved as Microsoft Word, Power Point, Excel, or Jpgs.  These can be uploaded to a personal Google Drive account or to your new school Office 365 account One Drive.  Your mail will be saved as a MBOX file that can imported into another mailbox or converted to PDFs.
