Archiving Your Google Data

I always encourage students to use the personal Google account for school work so they still “own” the data after they leave high school.

But what if they haven’t, and they’re above to move on to a postsecondary school or the workplace?

There are basically two options:

  1. Move your data to your personal account
  2. Download your data

To move your data to a new account, just visit and enter the relevant information. Just be sure you have enough disk quota in your personal account or you may run into trouble.

To download your data, visit and select the data you want to download. Note that this can take a long time, depending on how much data you have in your Google account.
