how to retrieve an inactive google account
re-activate an inactive google account
I have a gmail account, that was basically the first gmail account that I created. I pretty much never use the email account, but unfortunately, many of my word documents, saved games, and other important issues are tied to this account. I have a ridiculous amount of things going on in my life right now (applying for a Master's Degree, working 6 days a week FT, being in recovery for over 2.5 years {which is important, as I am having to rebuild my entire life, from the ground up, as I was in active addiction, on and off for the better part of 10 years}, so I did not heed the warnings that my account had been inactive for too long, until it was too late. It wasn't until I was searching for a particular document in word, that I had a really hard time locating, that I realized that the particular google account that I am referring to, has some very important information on it that I need to retrieve. Any help that I receive on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
Sincerely,
Erin Byers

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unfortunately your only hope is to contact Gmail. If you set up an account recovery phone number or questions they may be able to help recover the account.  Seeing as the warnings went unanswered for a while they may not be able to help you.. This is a reason you should always back up your important files and documents to another source just in case of problems.
