Here is the original article, which is describing the process. It's quite easy and works fine, but with highrise_assistexport you can do much better. This tool introduce you possibility to export companies and contacts with all the hierarchy of data including emails, notes, comments, cases, deals and even attachments (with web console you just don't have such possibility) in xml or yaml formats. It is possible to mark exact business objects with the tag and then just export them.
+The use case1:
+As user of higrise
+I want to archive old contacts and companies
+So that my list will be clean
+Original help request:
+What 37signals' team recommends is: "Have you considered adding a tag to those contacts called "archived"?"
+With highrise_assistexport you can easily export all the data tagged as "archived", and than just remove data from the system.
+The use case2:
+As user of higrise
+I want to export all my data including attachments
