Google Takeout

Leaving the Grossmont District?

If you are graduating, changing jobs, or moving schools, you can take all of your Google data with you! 

For all services except Google Sites, simply follow the steps below for using Google Takeout. This tool allows you to download all of your Google-related items. You can then transfer or upload those items to a personal, university, or other Google account.

Process for using Google Takeout:
Takeout will allow you to transfer or export Drive files, Docs, Presentations, Sheets, images, mail, calendar events, etc. You cannot simply share Google files with an account outside GUHSD and transfer ownership.


Step One: Gmail and Drive
  1. Create a new personal Google Account.
  2. Log into your GUHSD account.
  3. Visit the Google Takeout page.

  5. Send and retrieve the code from your personal account. 
  6. Verify destination account.
  7. Select content to copy.
  8. If you are only moving Files from Gmail and Drive, you can stop here.  If you have files in other Google products, move on to Step Two below.
