How to use Google Takeout
This documentation will provide the reader the skills needed to successfully take their Google Drive files with them whether it be using Google Takeout.
As Students come and go and so do staff, we want to give users the ability to take their files with them to their next location. To do this we have provided Google Takeout so that users can download their entire Google Drive. (Note: You must have an external flash drive or hard drive that has more free capacity than the size of your current Google Drive.)
