Google Takeout is a service which Google announced back in July last year, which allowed users to take a quick backup of Picasa, Contacts, Buzz, +1s etc. We have also covered how to use Google’s +1 and takeout as a bookmarking service. Today, Google has added Google Docs to the service, which means users can take a complete backup of their Google Docs files to their PC. The service shows you the number of files available and the size of the file before actually exporting them.
