back up gmail

With more than 7GB of space, Gmail is one of surfers’ favorite places to store all kind of stuff. From personal information to files, to documents to emails (of course). Everything can be stored easily in Gmail. With such an amount of data it is only normal to be a little paranoid about your Gmail account and wish to back it up as soon as and as frequently as possible. But how to do that? Let’s find out how we can backup and restore your Google account thanks to a little freeware software.

Gmail backup lets you backup your Gmail in a couple of steps. This nice free application lets you backup all of your e-mails as well as labels, date etc. Your messages are stored in a directory of your choice and the file will follow  the format YYYYMMDD-hhmmss-nn.eml where YYYY is the year, MM the month number, DD is the day number, hh are hours, mm are minutes and ss are seconds when the e-mail was sent. Gmail backup also features an interesting option called “incremental backup” which aims to shorten the whole backup process by checking all emails in the account to see whether their have already been downloaded. If so then it skips them. If you want to download the application, click here.
