According to Google, all Gmail users are now free to download Calendar data, while the download facility for e-mail messages will only be rolled out next month.

Google made this announcement through a blog post, saying “You can download all of your mail and calendars or choose a subset of labels and calendars. You can also download a single archive file for multiple products with a copy of your Gmail, Calendar, Google+, YouTube, Drive, and other Google data.”

Users can now download entire message box or can even select specific messages with definite labels through this option. The e-mail data will be downloaded in MBOX format. This format is supported by various easily available clients such as Microsoft Outlook 2011, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Apple Mail.

There is also a huge list of Google products that let you download local copies of your data. The download feature requires the users to head to data download page after signing in to the official account and then clicking on to “Create an archive” option.
