OK, #throwbackthursday

OK, #throwbackthursday

I did NOT do a takeout (what kind of masochist do you take me for), so I probably have not found my actual first post, but I was certainly active by July and August of 2011…

Here’s a selection. Some things never change…

  1. My Google Takeout for my entire 7 years on G+ ended up being nearly 8GB. I’ve taken a little poke around inside it, but yeah, talk about a Sisyphean task.

    IIRC, I arrived around Oct-Nov 2011. 🙂

    I’ve started deleting stuff mercilessly. Reshares and links are almost all going. I’m leaving some of my writing.

  3. I’ve done Takeouts periodically ever since they made the service available. I pulled my post from a random click in the middle of my Takeouts directory.

    …I need to do some Swedish Death Cleaning on my backup drive as well as my home, I guess…

  4. Sallie Alys Montuori I just checked the Google Takeout Zip of my G+ history. Nothing older than 2015! Grrrr….

  5. The weird thing is that mine is only in the 300MB region – I suspect because I mostly did text posts and reshares. Haven’t actually been able to download it successfully yet 😑

  6. God Emperor Lionel Lauer o.O I suddenly feel justified in downloading Takeouts early and often…

    It was definitely the Google+ Streams folder you looked in?

  7. Sallie Alys Montuori Yes. I’ve tried again with nothing but the Streams this time, & seems to have gotten further – there are some 2012 posts – but Google is still giving me the same error message:

  8. Greg S Pictures & videos definitely make a big difference. 😉

  9. God Emperor Lionel Lauer That was exactly the error that I was getting. I haven’t yet pulled down an archive that I generated (successfully – the transfer to mobile keeps choking and dying) so I haven’t seen how far back mine goes.

    I was also fiddling with allmyplusDOTcom, which still seems to have some functionality, but the first thing I can find (which is likely my first post to Public) is in 2012 there. We’ll see…

  10. God Emperor Lionel Lauer Wow. I ran a new G+ takeout today, and got the same error: no posts at all earlier than 2012, and very few indeed before late 2014. That’s pretty uncool for an account that posted regularly from July 2011 on. >.<

    I was happy to see that sometime since the last time I had paid attention, it became possible to send your downloads directly to Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive/Box(wottinhellizzatlastone?) instead of waiting for the email to do it manually, though.
