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.
