Congratulations! You’ve restored data into a Google account. Now, you may be wondering what your data looks like after having temporarily disappeared into the ether of the Internet. Does it look the same as it was before? Is it in the same location you remember putting it in? Can the same people you have shared it with still access the information? With Spanning, the answer to each of these questions is…yes!
