BaGoMa backs up and restores the contents of a GMail account. It can restore all the labels (folder structure), as well as the flags (seen/read, flagged) of a message. It supports the use of any character in labels, including non-ASCII characters and "/" (the label hierarchy delimiter). BaGoMa is tuned to work specifically with GMail. Each message is only downloaded and saved once. Backup solutions that are designed to work with regular IMAP accounts will download each message multiple times (once per label) when used to back up a GMail account. This can significantly increase the bandwidth requirements and the amount of storage required for backup. Additionally, a faithful restoration of your GMail account might not be possible from such a backup.
