How to Solve "Export Failed" Error During Google Takeout of Location History?
You received an "Export failed" message with a very cryptic "Something went wrong and your Google data wasn't exported". Also, the link to "Find out more about Google Takeout" doesn't seem to yield anything useful. A quick search on the internet only leads to not-so-helpful posts like Location History Takeout always fails.
Through sheer luck of trial and error, I've managed to find a solution to this problem. The key is to select .tgz as the file type during export and it will work. I'm using Windows 11 and I have no problem exporting this archive format.
