    Here is an easy way to backup your Google Products data in a compressed archive.
    You can backup Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, YouTube, Google Drive, Hangouts, Bookmarks...
    1. Go to https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom and login with your user and password.
    2. Choose what to backup.
    3. Click on the red button that says CREATE ARCHIVE.

    It will take some time before the archive is ready for download. In my case it took about 30 seconds, but if you have a lot of data (on google drive, Youtube, etc.) it would take more time.

    By default you will receive a mail when the archive file is ready for download:
