I got my first tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017), running Android 7.1.1). During inital set up, I connected my Google/Gmail account to the tablet. I have had my Google/Gmail account for years -- using it on a desktop computer -- but I've never had a mobile device before.
I've changed my mind, and I now want to remove my Google/Gmail account from the tablet. To do this, I am about to follow the instructions here for removing a Google account (specifically, Apps > Settings > Google > More Options > Remove Account). Before I actually do this, I have two questions about what will happen:
(1) My Google account will be removed from the Android tablet, but my Gmail and Drive files will NOT be deleted from the cloud, correct? I will still be able to access my Gmail and Drive from the web using my desktop computer, as I have always done.
(2) Will my Gmail and Drive files on the tablet be deleted from the tablet's storage (but, again, NOT from the cloud)? I would hope that they would be deleted from the tablet's storage, since that is sort of the point of removing the account from the device. (When I connected my Google/Gmail account, I believe it automatically downloaded much, if not all, of my Gmail and Drive files to the tablet.)
Thanks so much for your help.
