Help! I Need to Backup My Gmail Account!

If you’ve found yourself needing to change your Gmail address because you’ve graduated, or are getting ready to embark on a new career opportunity lately, you may have run into some trouble. Most of us store amazing amounts of important personal information inside our Gmail accounts. Work portfolios, student research projects or papers, even tax documents from the last several years and your important contacts and calendars can be found linked to your Gmail. So what happens when you need to keep all of that information, but can’t necessarily keep your old account? Here’s where it starts to get tricky. You can try going into “settings” on your Gmail account, unfortunately what you will find there is this:

Google account email you cant change this address

So, you can’t actually change your Gmail address. If you’re tech savvy you might try going into the “Advanced” option in your settings to see if there’s any way you can just merge a new Gmail account with your existing one. It all looks good, until you notice this:

Google alternate email address requirements

It doesn’t seem like there’s any way to keep all of your important documents without keeping your Gmail account. But if you’re leaving school or moving on to a new job opportunity, you most likely don’t have the option of keeping your old account open. In order to keep all of that important data, you need to make a backup copy of your Gmail account. If you aren’t in any hurry, have a few days of free time and don’t need your info backed up in a way where it’s easily accessible, you can work you way through the process manually with Google Takeout, but…
