How do I export my Gmail or Google Drive to a personal account?


You may copy the contents of your Carthage Gmail or Google Drive account to your personal Google account through a process called Google Takeout.


  • If you use Google Photos, Google Contacts, or YouTube videos, you may not copy them in this way directly. First, you must transfer those files to your Drive account, then complete the transfer.
  • Documents shared with you aren't automatically included in this transfer. Make sure to add the files that have been shared with you to your Google Drive.
  • When your files are finished copying, you will get an email at your Gmail address.

Start the Copying Process:

  1. Log in to your Carthage Gmail account. In that same browser, go to this Google webpage to begin the Google Takeout process (copying your content):
  2. On the form, enter the personal email address where you want to receive the copied content.
  3. Click "Send Code." Check your personal Gmail account for the code.
  4. On the transfer form in your Carthage account's browser, enter the code, then choose "Verify your destination."
  5. Select the content to copy and select "Start transfer."
