Hi Steve,

The Google Takeout that Elizabeth mentioned worked nicely for us and it
doesn't cost anything (other than time, of course).

Question: Do they want both Drive and Mail files. GTakeout generates .mbox
files for email, which seemed to be a bit more difficult for some users.
They needed a bit more help.

Another option: For one user we just set up old and new GAFE accounts in
Thunderbird. Once the mail from the old account had been loaded she could
then just drag her folders from the old to the new account and it copied
everything. Not really easier than the .mbox file(s), but better for her as
she hadn't cleaned out the stuff she didn't want yet but was under a time
constraint. (Always better to put off the cleaning for the future :)
