No guaranteed, faithful audit trail is given by Google Docs. Logs are lost by Google because of (1) deleterious forced upgrades (2) forced space optimization (3) no downloadable backups preventing loss. Revisions Deleted by Upgrade: Google Docs' last official upgrade did not save, nor migrate, old Revision History to their new version, resulting in total ...

Well, after discovering that the starred locations are also mirrored on Google Bookmarks, I wrote a Python script to scrape the coordinates and generate a KML file: Export Google Maps starred locations Go to Google Bookmarks: https://www.google.com/bookmarks/ On the bottom left, click "Export bookmarks": https://www.google.com/bookmarks/bookmarks.html?hl=...

Seeing that there's no convenient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/ It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation) UPDATE: this app is no longer relevant, you can use Google Takeout to export your bookmarks as ...

Now press Ctrl+Shift+J and then paste this code into the lower window that pops up, and then press Enter. It ...

The IMAP interface to Gmail now provides access to chat messages. If you had already set up Gmail IMAP, then you only have to enable the IMAP visibility for the "Chat" label in the Gmail settings (in the "Label" tab, a "show in IMAP" tick box is available for each label). Update: this method works for Google Chat, but NOT for Hangouts, only conversations of ...

I successfully used Got Your Back (GYB) to move 7 years of messages (with labels!) from a @gmail.com account to my new Google Apps account at my own domain. Here's how: Backing up your old @gmail.com account Download GYB and unzip it somewhere. (I'm on a Mac so I used the "Python Source" version, but if you're on Windows you'll need that version instead.) ...

There is unfortunately no in house option from Reddit itself, nor are there any 3rd party apps that allow this. However, using the Reddit API, you could use: http://www.reddit.com/user/karmanaut/overview.json or to return in XML format: http://www.reddit.com/user/karmanaut/overview.xml Of course you can fetch just your comments or your submitted links: →...

You can try going to http://m.facebook.com/ and click on "Messages". Select a person to view the history, and click on "See Older Messages" once. Notice that &start= part in the URL, that's the number of received and sent messages minus 7. Notice the &page_size=7 part in the URL. Currently, Facebook does not limit this number, you can set that to ...

Now that Google seems to be leaning towards "Google Photos" or whatever they're going to call it, you can download your Picasa Web videos. Here's how: Go to the Google+ version of your site ( http://www.google.com/+ ). On the left hand side, click on the "Photos" icon. Find and click on the album with the video you want to download. Find and click on the ...

I found the button class for the 'Want to Read' button and looped through and clicked them all by running this Javascript in the console. var buttonArray = document.getElementsByClassName('w-button-common w-button-unfollow'); for(var a=0;a<buttonArray.length;a++){ buttonArray[a].click(); }

Easiest process was to go to Google Bookmarks, copy each of the starred items, and paste it to a note or Word doc. Log out of the Google account and log into the new Google account. Go to Google Maps. Paste each link from your doc into Google maps one by one and star each item as you go. Took me 5 minutes to do the 20 or so that I had. Very easy.

You need to use a third-party email client and get your messages via the POP and/or IMAP protocols. A desktop client is usually assumed, but you might be able to use a webmail app like Outlook.com. (You'll have a lot less control of your data with the latter.) From the Data Liberation Front: Escaping from Gmail IMAP, POP Access It's easy to use ...

Google provides a way to download your uploaded videos with their "Take Out" archive tool. Link here It is possible with the Youtube API but requires an authenticated GET request. Here is more information on how to write one.

Go to https://takeout.google.com/ and select only Maps (your places) After downloading and extracting zip, use http://nearby.org.uk/convert-saved-places.php to convert to KML

I figured out a way to export your starred locations. Go to your account settings Click on the section titled "Data Tools" Click Select data to download "Create an Archive" Check "Bookmarks" "Create Archive" Download and you're done! You'll get an HTML file with all the locations as addresses that are linked to the Google Maps.

It is not currently possible to merge Google accounts, but it can be done on a per product basis. Otherwise, you will need to find workarounds that are not official Google protocol.

Google Takeout will let you download your Gmail messages in MBOX format. From there, you'd need to convert it to CSV. I haven't used any of these, but a quick search found several possible paths you could take, for instance: MBOX-to-XLS Converter Aid4Mail mbox2csv (perl script)

Google Takeout can be used to download data from most Google services, including Google+. From the help article: You can download your Google+ content using Google Takeout. If you want to download your Google+ data, you need to download your data from: +1s Google+ Circles Google+ Communities Google+ Stream Note: If you want to ...

Google Takeout I understand your frustration, especially since everyone is telling you Picasa's only purpose is for sharing. Although it has a huge emphases on that, it is only the primary location for storing ones personal photos with Google's service. You were very close in your searches when you talked about Google's Data Liberation. There is in fact a ...

I use a tool called SocialSafe that backs up all of (well, pretty much all of) my Facebook content, and that now includes messages. I can search through them all, and also jump see in the little diary part of it all of the different things that I've done on Facebook over the years.

The bottom line is, no, there is not. Unlike Blogger, which has a way to write posts externally, Google+ does not have any such public system, and Google appears to have not wanted to support such a thing to migrate posts at this time. Make sure you use the Send feedback system to make sure they are aware of your displeasure with this situation and urge ...

I don't believe it's currently possible to transfer Picasa-web contents: your only option would be to use Takeout to download the contents, and then re-upload them. This would, of course, change the URLs of all your photos.

This is now working for amazon.de too. You just need to create a business account. Then go to Business Konto -> Beschaffungsanalysen (sorry for German, but he asked especially for amazon.de). There you can select required columns and export it to CSV.

AFAIK there isn't a way to export/download stored passwords yet. References Manage saved passwords from the web - Accounts Help Sync passwords across your devices - Accounts Help Manage saved passwords - Chrome Help

I wrote a scraper (in Python 2.7 and Scrapy) for this task a while ago. Sans official API, it uses a logged-in session cookie and HTML parsing. Dumps to SQLite by default. GitHub: YouTube Watch History Scraper
