Gmail: create a backup now and rest assured!

Usually those using Gmail keep everything there. But what if we lose access to our account for some reason? What if we are penalized by Google and our account expires for life? At that point, we could lose everything including various credentials that may be stored in Gmail. In any case, it’s not a bad idea to back up everything we have in Gmail from time to time. It’s just that we are never surprised.

Then we just click on Create Export. But only by the way. We can export once or every two months for a year. This is good for a regular backup.

However, Google will start creating the backup. As soon as it’s done.

So you can transfer all photos to a microSD card.
