Google Announces Data Export For GMail, Google Calendar

Letting you back it up


Google is no stranger to service disruptions. And while it may feel like the end of the world when you're without email access for an hour, things could be worse — your entire six-year Gmail history could be lost forever.

As a preventative measure, the search giant today began rolling out the ability to export a copy of your Gmail and Google Calendar data.

Back up your data by downloading your every saved message and calendar event, or pick a specific subset of labels and agendas you want to move over to another service.
