I just wanted to backup the HOME directory, flags, stack and key assignments to :3:. that way I can recover from any crash that wipes the memory. I started to write my own code and it does work good but occasionally gives "object in use" error when it's saving to the SD card.
The built in archive command is good but misses some stuff (like the stack). I'll keep coding my little program but thought there might be something written mostly in RPL that everyone is using.
is there a way to run a 50G program on calculator start-up like the PC autoexec.bat?

"Object In Use" can be a bit tricky to debug, because there's a wide variety of causes. One in particular that I believe is consistent is if you try to store something in a port (or create an ARCHIVE) when there's already an object with the same name in that location. I'm pretty sure you'll have to PURGE the pre-existing object before the 50g will allow that. There's other causes, too. Try googling the comp.sys.hp48 group for "object in use" and you'll find quite a few references. You'll also find a wealth of information there pertaining to ARCHIVE, RESTORE, issues pertaining to key assignments, alarms, etc.

Another set of commands you may want to investigate is PUSH and POP. Those might be useful for what you are doing.
