Backup files are organized by Google Apps user, and can be easily opened using the Windows Explorer.

All Google Apps data is backed up to files that are compatible with local applications.

Google Document files: backup files are organized in a hierarchical tree, just as they are in Google Docs.

Google Mail: CubeBackup backs up “inbox”, “sent mail” and “starred” email messages. Messages are grouped by month.

Google Contacts: Contacts are stored in two formats. The first is an XML file, which is used to directly restore contact information to Google Apps. The second is vCard (.vcf) format which can be opened by Microsoft Outlook and other compatible applications.

Google Calendar: Backup files are organized by date, and also stored in two formats. XML files are used by CubeBackup to restore calendars to Google Apps, and iCalendar (.ics) files can be directly opened by Microsoft Outlook and other compatible applications.
