Perhaps getting into nerdish ranges, but 650,000 text messages is, being generous, well under 10 gigabytes. It's true that for humans to look over every one of them would take a long time, but there are standard utilities, like UNIX GREP or its Windows FINDSTR equivalent that would spot stuff like "Secret", "Confidential", "(C)", "(S)" and a long list of other terms of interest -- those terms having been identified in the previous server investigation -- in minutes, not more than hours.

Similar techniques would identify files already discovered in the previous server investigation.

So, once the FBI gets access to the files, I'd think progress toward a resolution of the question should be rapid.
