Next is to Get details of your data by clicking any Google service, like Gmail or Group.
You will see an outline of your data in it when you click any of the Google service tabs.
From there you can inquire more. (Note: These options are not available for each service.)
At the bottom right, select More. If the option isn't available, go to the service and change the settings there.
You can have a copy of your data by selecting Download Data.
Steps to Download your Data
In a few steps, you can download your data for use in another device or maybe for other evaluation purposes. One of the Important things to remember is - downloading your data doesn't delete it from Google’s servers.
By default, all Products are selected for downloading. If you want some specific Products related data to be downloaded, then click Deselect all.
If you only want to download some of your data from a product, you may have the option to select All data included. Then, you can uncheck the box next to data you don’t want to download.
Select Next Step.
Customize your archive format
You can choose your Delivery Method option which suits best to you.
Same goes for Export type and File type.
Note, the description under Archive size states that files larger than the selected size of the file will be split into multiple files.
After selecting the suitable options for archive format select Create Archive. If you had selected one of these options, you will receive an email with a link to its location.
Depending on the amount of data in your account, this process could take from a few minutes to a few days. Most people get the link to their archive the same day that they had requested.
One more thing to consider is the Check Activity tab, as you can see from the above image. Google’s main priority is to keep your data safe in any case. From security perspective check the box which says Yes, it was me and get going.
File Format and Concepts
Deciding on which format you should choose depends on the service, type of data, and your intended use of it. You should choose the types that you believe are the most useful and portable. Possibly you can relate from the below image that products having a large amount of data may take hours to days for download, so choose accordingly from your preference list.
Data is most important for any business and Google Services help you to extract maximum benefit from your business data, so that you can meet market demands as well as progress ahead of your competition.
