Is it even possible to backup your Google account? If so, how does one go about doing so? Many people are unsure about the process, since Google is one of the most notorious “do not share” websites online. You really do not want to put your entire business or personal data at risk for sake of having a backup of your account. In order to make Google think differently, you need to backup your Google data frequently. And fortunately, it is very easy to do.
The first thing you need to do is to sign up with Google. Once you do that, you will see a dashboard containing three different sections. One section is labeled “abilia”, which contains all the backup files you have access to on your Google Drive. The second section is labeled “read me”, which has the data you have backed up in a text file. And finally, the third section is labeled “storage”, which contains all the other files you have backed up.
If you click on the storage icon, you will be taken to another page. Here you will find several different ways to backup your data. These methods include creating a backup directly to your computer (not Google Drive), sending the backup to an external hard drive, and restoring the backup to your computer. You can create a backup directly to your computer by clicking the “back up now” link right next to the Gmail account in your main page. Be sure to check out the “Change folder” icon at the top of the screen so that you will be taken to your Google Drive.
If you choose to use an external drive, then you have several options. You can use a CD, a flash drive, or even a DVD. If you are restoring your backup to a specific point in time, then you want to be sure that the files are all in the same place. To do this, click on the advanced option (near the bottom). You will see a drop down menu. Choose the “copy all files to the external drive” option.
If you choose to backup to a specific computer, then you can do so directly from the backup itself. To do this, click the “back up now” link right next to the Gmail account in your main page. Now, you will be taken to a page where you will choose the folder you want to back up to. Be sure to choose the exact location of the folder you want to back up to.
After you have clicked the “back up now” link, your Google account will be backed up. Your Google account will be opened immediately after you have saved your changes. You will then be able to access your information from any computer that has an internet connection. Some computers (including iPhones) use MTP to automatically synchronize with your computer. For more information about this method, please read the “hooting and troubleshooting” section below. Backup your Google account to prevent loss of data.
In some cases, you may have to be forced to back up your Gmail folder. The best way to go about it is to be creative. In order to make your life easier, you can copy all of your email into a new folder on another computer (preferably another personal computer). Once you are able to log into your other computer, you can then open the backup that you made and view your messages there.
If you have forgotten how to backup your Google folders, all you have to do is click the “advanced options” link next to the account in the main dashboard. This will bring up a window with a number of different options. From here, all you have to do is click the “backup now” link. It’s as easy as that! No more searching for your files.
