I like Google Docs service very much. At the same time I don't trust anyone... here come two unofficial ways how to backup Google Docs documents:

Enjoy!

Update:
Checkout also Gladinet Cloud Desktop at http://www.gladinet.com. Its free and makes it easy to Backup Google Docs. You can mount your Google Docs folder as a local drive in explorer and move files back and forth between Google Docs and your desktop. You can also create scheduled backups to Google Docs or to a Redundant Array of Cloud Storage.

Maybe someone could help me. I am looking for backup for google docs. Do I understand correctly? Will the result of this code be my google docs will be backed-up on my computer? And changes made to google docs and/or on my computer will sync with each other?

Also is their anyone here that could help me a little put in the code? For a small fee?

I am an individual, not an administrator nor organization.

Hi,
I’ve released the first version of my php script (based on Zend Framework) to backup Google Apps data. Now it is limited to Google Documents but I think it could be interesting.

For an open source solution you can try Goofs. It's a filesystem for linux that is synched bi-directionally with your google documents, contacts, calendar, etc.

Hi - I am one of the authors of BackupGoo. We also wanted to have a secure offline copy of our data. BackupGoo is really simple to use and backups all your stuff from Google to your local harddrive in widely-used formats. This includes e.g. GMail, Google Docs, Google Reader. Google Docs for instance is saved in a few different file formats (like pdf and doc) that can be viewed and edited in any common text editor.

Check it out at www.backupgoo.com

Cheers, dom

Hi,
I too had issues of creating a backup of my doc files and then a friend told me about Endpoint Vault. Endpoint vault provides an online backup for Google doc files. In fact, you can save files of any format on Endpoint Vault. I feel that it is the best option for your issue. Endpoint Vault works great. You must check it.
