Google Docs Backup Demo

Update: Since October 2009 you should use Google Docs Batch Export instead.

Since last month the Google Docs Data API has support for downloading documents. Here’s a small demo that downloads 10 of your documents as a .zip file.

The demo will only download up to 10 documents and it won’t download documents bigger than 1 MB. This is because the demo runs on Google App Engine, which restricts the size and response time of HTTP-responses.

Try it out

  1. Follow this link
  2. Grant the demo access to your Google documents:
    Grant Access to your documents
  3. Wait for the download of the .zip file. This can take up to 60 seconds.
    Wait for the download
