Are you looking for an easy way to back up your Gmail account messages?
Here is what to do,
There are different ways to backup your Google mail account, but most of the users don’t understand how to do it. We at Trending Tips and Tricks is here to help you backup Gmail account in few simple clicks!
The Download Gmail add-on is here that automatically saves a copy of your Gmail emails and all file attachments to your Google drive. You can also use the Drive client to back up the files and emails saved in Drive to your local Windows system or Mac OS X.
With this approach, we have a little drawback – Google Drive and Gmail share the common storage space. So in case, if you archive an email thread, say, if you have a 10 MB file attachment, the email will end up consuming overall 20 MB space in your Google Storage (10 MB in Google mail and another 10 MB in Google Drive).
How to Move Gmail Data from One Google Account to Another
If your current Google mail account is running low on storage, you can consider using a new Gmail account to backup your existing emails and then delete the bulk emails from the primary account to make space. There are no add-ons to install and the Gmail-to-Gmail transfer happens directly in the cloud.
Let’s get started.
Create a new Gmail account for backup, go to Settings, select the Accounts and Import tab and choose Import Mail and Contacts.
In the pop-up window, specify the email address of your existing @gmail.com account from where you wish to import the messages into the new account. Sign-in with your credentials and allow the ShuttleCloud app to access your Google mail and Google contacts data.
Once the authentication is successful, click the “Start Import” button to begin the migration. You can close this window or even log out and close your browser as the import happens in the cloud.
After all the emails are imported, you’ll find a new label in your new Google mail account that will house all the imported emails. The folder structure of the source email account is replicated under this new label.
Once the migration is complete, you can visit myaccount.google.com/permissions and revoke access to the service. Also, since the authentication happens via Google OAuth, you don’t have to share your password anywhere.
