GDocBackup – the fast easy free way to back up your Google Docs files


GDocBackup is a free program which is designed to offer fast and easy backup of your Google Docs files. Sure the whole point of the cloud is to store and access your files online, but what happens if…gasp…the Internet crashes? And you need access to your spreadsheets, powerpoints or similar? Think it can’t happen?

Anyway this is one of those small tools that could be very useful one day. There’s no interface to speak of. Just click on the big red Exec button, sign in to your account and the files are downloaded to a folder of your choice. No mess, no fuss. Valuable.

 GDocBackup is simple utility to backup (export) all your documents from Google Documents to local disk. It’s open source, freeware and licensed under the Apache License Version 2.0 It does a simple backup: for each document in Google Docs, it downloads the document if the document is not present on the local disk or if it has a different date.
