I Have 6 G-Suite email accounts I need to remove however some of my staff still requires the contents of those Gmail accounts as they span 3-6 years and have a lot of historical data. I am looking for a way to Export the emails into a drive like structure, or individual files (with attachments) so they can be searched in Drive.

Are there any tools that can do this? A few of these email drives have upwards of 20gb of email.

Google provides an data export function with several different options, both for the format and where to export to. You can read more about the tool here.

  • Google downloads it as an Mbox format, I haven't seen any type of other options. – Ryan Ternier Mar 6 at 18:51


  • This is an MBOX format, something that isn't compatible by browsing it with a file explorer or on google drive. THat's what I'm after. – Ryan Ternier Mar 6 at 19:45
