How can I copy/export a users Google Drive without knowing his password? (I am system admin off course)

If I knew the password , I could use the batch export. But I don't want to update/change his password, as this operation should be a stealth one.

Saariko, I think the best option here is Backupify's Snapshot tool. As an admin, you can download:

... all the Gmail & Gchat messages, Google Drive documents, Google Calendar events, Google Contacts entries and Google Sites data from a single Google Apps user account.
