Delete your Google Account
What happens to your data
If you delete your Google Account, you'll no longer have access to Google Drive or the Docs editors. You'll also lose any preferences and data associated with your Google Account for other services, including your Gmail account.
Recover files from your Google Drive folder
You'll be able to recover files and folders from your computer's trash if you've installed Google Drive for your Mac / PC, but Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides will no longer be accessible.
Delete a Google Apps account
If you use Google Apps, your administrator is the only person who can delete your account. If you have any issues with your accounts, contact your Google Apps administrator.
