And that’s just Google. Not what Alphabet, Inc. has on me. No data they bought from brokers. No derived data.
Is this Google drive or data from other sources?
@jlhertel Looks like ~14GB is YouTube (uploaded videos), ~3GB is mail, and about 240MB from drive. The most “interesting” stuff is in the data in the low MB/KB files. Purchases/reservations, for example, has a list of all my purchases up to ~2013 (when I was using Gmail) that had receipts sent to Gmail.
Afaik, that’s the only derived data I could find. Google has tons more, of course, and it would be interesting to see if all that gets deleted too.

I very much endorse #Posteo. They collect only data strictly required for the service. They don't advertise since the users pay (1€/month). If you want, you can pay in cash (by mail), in which case they'll have zero personal data on you. And they offer nice mailvelope integration, end-to-end encryption for calendar data and such. E-mail doesn't get more privacy-oriented.
