Export All Your Google Documents in 3 Steps

Google made it easier to export all your documents, spreadsheets, presentations and PDFs from Google Docs:

1. right-click on one of the files from the docs list and select "Export"



2. check "export all your files (up to 2 GB)" and click on "Continue"



3. wait until the files are archived or click on "Email when ready"



While this is a great way to backup all your files, an application that synchronizes your documents would be more useful.

  1. When will Google buy DropBox or something equivalent?

    (I know, the day they add pdf upload by mail.)

  3. Dropbox supports more files - e.g. .ai files. Google does not!

  5. Good start but rather clumsy setup. Selecting ONE file to export all of them doesn't make sense. There should be an export/backup button setup exactly for this purpose. Also, without an automated system which backs-up files daily I'm hesitant to recommend Google Docs be used across our entire company.

  6. Great idea, but it is a clumsy setup. I haven't heard anything about GDrive lately, or is this Chrome OS?
