In accordance with NWR7's acceptable use policy, graduating senior Gmail accounts are closed at the end of the academic year.  Actual account closures typically occur at the end of July.  This allows ample time for students to export any data they wish to retain.  A common question is how the data can be downloaded or saved for future use.   While several options exist (below), option 1 is recommended:

1.  Download data folders.  Very simple and effective.  Simply right click on the folder(s) you wish to keep.  Select download, and the folders will begin to download in zip format.  Once done, open your download folder on your local device.  Right click the folder and extract to the default folder or desired location.  Make a mental note of that location.  Login to your personal Gmail account.  In Drive, click on New, Folder upload.   Locate the unzipped data folders and simply select them to upload.  The data will now move to your personal Gmail drive account, and you will have ownership of the data.  Done.

2.  Google Takeout.  Google Takeout is a Google app which enables the bulk download of all of your data at once.  Please see these external reference links for instruction:
