Bye Bye Orkut .. Those golden days, scrapping each other, viewing photos, last viewed by, checking friends friends …. oh dear Golden days and awesome memories around orkut will end in next few hrs, sad
If you are still an active ORKUT user or if you have some data there that you’d like to download, there are easy ways to do so. Before you begin, know that you can’t download information from other people’s accounts. Google only lets you download data from your own Orkut account. This also means you won’t be able to download the scraps or testimonials you sent to other people. You can only download the scraps and testimonials you’ve received and their comments.
If you want to save the pictures and scraps to your computer, you can use Google Takeout. This service lets you download all your Orkut account data in a zip file. The file will contain HTML files and photos. Google says you can download your profile, scraps received, testimonials received, activities and your photos from Orkut. You will be able to download your Orkut data using Google Takeout until September 2016. This is how to download your Orkut data:
1) Head to Google Takeout and sign in if you haven’t already done so.
2) Click “Choose services” and then select Orkut.
3) Click “Create archive” and wait till the archive is ready. If you like, you can leave the page, and receive an email when the archive is ready.
4) Once the archive is ready, click Download. Google says there’s no limit on how many times you can download your Orkut information.
