If you are a Senior who needs to keep access to your documents, or you are leaving for other reasons, here are a few notes on how to transfer your data/emails/ etc.
Emails: Forward your emails to your personal account…. or see the link below.
- email the drive documents to your personal account.
- download the files onto a flash drive, or onto your computer at home. If you select multiple document, Drive will zip them all together first. Just don’t do too many of them!
- In extreme cases the Tech Dept. may be able to do something called Google Takeout, which will download all of your Drive docs onto a flash drive. Contact us to see if that’s possible.
