Transfer Google Drive Before Leaving District

Google Takeout is a service that allows you to export a copy of content in your Google Account if you want to back it up or use it with a service outside of Google.


  • Make sure you are signed into your school Google account.
  • Visit the Google Account page by clicking on your icon at the top right corner and selecting “Google Account.”
  • Under the “Personal Info and Privacy” header, select “Control your Content.”
  • Scroll down to the “Transfer your Content” box and click on “Start Transfer.”
  • Enter the Gmail address you are transferring content to. Send the code.
  • Google will send an email to the Gmail account you entered. Open it and enter the code to “verify your account destination.”
  • Select which content you would like to transfer (Drive and Gmail should be options).
  • Click on “Start Transfer.”

Note: You will be alerted via email when the transfer is complete. This could take hours or days, depending on file amount and size.
