Google make a bit of a feature of you being able to get all your data on to your PC, but has anyone done it recently?
I've archived mostly my Gmail (6GB) and had continual failures trying to get it. Initially the problems were downloads weren't completed (a bit annoying if Google, despite what they say, don't break up the archive into smaller chunks) and lately it's been more about circular references when I try and download a created archive.
Just wondering if it's me, the PC, the browser (I use FF & Chrome), the ISP, or Google.

I am unable to create an archive successfully. I just get a zip containing an errors.html with notes about being unable to retrieve the data.

Was curious so I gave it a go with the same results, just zip containing an html page of errors.

Gave them super helpful feedback.
