Hi Molly,

There is a tool for Gmail Backup known as Spanning Backup for G Suite.

Spanning Backup for G Suite gives you automatic daily and on-demand Gmail backups, allowing you to set email retention policies in the G Suite app itself. You can also decide which emails to back up by excluding certain labels – but with the unlimited storage that comes with every license, there’s never a need to worry about cleaning out your account to save space.

For more information please refer to below link. Hope this helps.

Kindly mark this as solved if the reply was helpful.
