I tested demo version of the SysTools Gmail Backup to export gmail mailbox to PST AND it looks quite interesting. I was able to backup Gmail emails locally usung free demo version. But I have a doubt in my mind as demo version limites to export only 100 emails to PST file format.
So,  my question is,  that i want to export more then 10000 emails from gmail and save it to my local system.  Is this software capable to export all emails to PST? How much time it will take to backuo 10000 mails from gmail account? Or awhat if I want to stop exporting process in between?

Any thoughts?
