A client of mine created a mockup of his website, I needed to use the images and content from the google site layout into the new project.

Having to preview the site on google sites was tedious enough and I still needed to get the images onto my local dev enviroment.

Although its pretty straight forward, it took me a while to figure it our because google had upgraded google sites.

Here are the steps as a quick reference for myself:

Step 1: Visit takeout.google.com

Step 2: Check All content under Drive

Step 3: Select the export type and settings

Step 4: Wait for files to be zipped

Step 5: View all your exports and click, find the most recent one and “download”

Step 6: Verify your credentials

Final Step:

Once you’ve verified your account, the collections of files will automatically start downloading as a zipped file.
