Backing up Google Contacts
Regularly backing up your contacts is a good idea, especially if you synchronize them with a program or extension like gContactSync just in case your or the program makes a mistake.
- Open and login to Gmail, if necessary and click on the Contacts link (or click here).
- Near the top right, click the Export button.
- Choose to export Everyone (My Contacts + Suggested Contacts) and click Export
- Choose to Save the file and pick an appropriate location for it.
If you ever need to restore the backed up contacts, click on the Import button in Step 2 and follow the prompts.
