Orkut is no more and was discontinued in September 2014. Someone told me that after a certain date in Sep 2014, to download our photos, scraps, testimonials, etc. we might not be able to get them back.
Did that happen to you? Are you one of those who lost great memories, scraps and photos from your school days in Orkut.
How would you feel, if you are able to get to download and backup Orkut scraps, testimonials, photos in a zip format or be sent to your existing email ID?
Feels like some part of your yesterday has come back alive, right? I felt the same when I found this trick.
Google Takeout to the rescue
