This will of course depend on how much information you have to download. Large profiles, huge Facebook albums and active long time accounts will take  a longer time to download Facebook data. Facebook will send you an email when your archive is ready for download.

It will also grab your Friends names and email addresses (if they have allowed it).  However, it will not download your friends photos and their personal information.

    Last time I tried to download my FB data and I waited for about twenty minutes. I was frustrated, closed that page and forgot about that thing. :P

    I recently decided to convert a profile page of one of my clients into a business page..Its really important to download Facebook data before any one implements such a change because once the conversion is done, the timeline data and other crucial data cannot be retrieved..Thanks for discussing this topic.

    Very good post, congratulations! I did not know anything at all about that. That is great. I read somewhere once that once you post something on Facebook that is in reality Facebook’s property. It is good to know there is a way to get your stuff back on your computer.
    Cheers
