Google Transfer & Takeout: How to take your Docs, files and data with you when you Graduate or Separate from EGSD.

Whether you're graduating from high school, transferring to a new school, a staff member retiring or going on to new challenges there are probably a lot of docs, files and content in the Googleverse you want to take with you. Google provides a simple way to download or transfer files from your EGSD Google  account to a personal Google account or personal computer. Of course you'll have to have or create a Gmail account if you don't have one but that's easy too. Be aware that your EGSD account provides you with unlimited storage for free and you have to buy storage from Google if you need more than 15GB. Here's a link for Google's Drive pricing.

Transferring files can take up to 48 hours so please don't wait until the last minute to transfer your files.
