If my word documents are on the Google Drive folder on my pc, will I be able to access those docs, in case of a Google shutdown?

Outlook?
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

It creates a zip file or two or three which you can then download.

To back up email its simple. Set up a live mail and a yahoo mail account and set Gmail to forward a copy of everything.

My question is how to back up my photos on Google pics?

1) only helps for the future not for the past.
2) It's not so simple to forward incoming emails they made it quite complicated.

I actually is this it in the reverse, I used livemail as my primary email, and back it up to Gmail.
When I set it up with Gmail it asked me if I want a forward all emails going back. I believe it is the same with the reverse...

This is the best option ( in my experience). You can back everything up and restore it on a different account.
