Overview

Google Takeout allows you to backup your Google data to a zip file. This is one way to retain your UWF Google data when you leave UWF. 

Available Google Takeout formats that can be downloaded are listed on the Google "per-service" information page.  Gmail data will download in an MBOX file format that can be used as an email archive.  This file can only be utilized using a 3rd party mail client (common mail clients are Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Apple’s Mail program).  

To migrate emails directly from your UWF Gmail to another email account see https://support.google.com/mail/answer/21289.

How to Backup

 

 

 

  • Next, select the data you would like to include in your Google Takeout data backup.  Once you have selected the products to include in the backup, click 'Next' at the bottom of the page.

 

  • After clicking 'Next,' the summary of your selection will appear.  Click 'Create archive.'
