Gmail Backup Utility

Gmail Backup.

Just completed a backup of our exams email account using Gmail Backup. Very easy to use and a great way of downloading copies of all the emails and, more importantly, the attachments!!

As this account is used to 'collect' exam work from our students, Gmail Backup provides a nice way to obtain a local copy of the files without having to download each one individually.

The work is, initially, uploaded to the email account using the Backup to Email software reviewed in a previous post.

It can be a little tedious identifying the individual emails, especially if you have lots, but each email is labelled with a code and the original date. A text file indexing the codes is also provided. Overall, Gmail Backup is a handy little utility.
