Downloading Your Data from Google Drive

If you are graduating from or transferring out of FCPS, you can download your data from Google by:

  1. Log in to your FCPS Google account.
  2. Press Ctrl + A (⌘ (Command) + A on a Mac) to select all of your files and folders in your drive.
  3. Near the upper right hand corner of the screen, you will see three vertical dots (). Click on the three dots and then click on Download.
  4. Google will then create a ZIP (compressed) file of all of your files and folders. This may take a while if you have a lot of files. In the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you will see a pop-up that says Preparing download.
  5. Once your files have been successfully zipped, the pop-up will say Download ready and your browser should automatically begin downloading the ZIP file to your computer.
