Absolutely! The 50g as serious computing device also for collecting data deserves a bit of housekeeping utilities. Several users every now and them post some backup solutions but unfortunately those gets scattered (if you have one, please post it here: http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-10271.html ).

I have a backup utility for some folders but thanks to the size of the SDcard and the size of the port0 memory, it wouldn't be bed, as first approach, to backup everything to the SD card. Either through ARCHIVE or simply mass copy and paste (to then order properly on the SD card using the SDFiler).

I strongly suggest a mass copy and paste every now and then. Even better when automated. Then the SDcard content can be recovered even if the 50g doesn't work thanks to the emulators. Whatever is in the internal memory can be lost for good.

Yes that bug is a bit annoying. Some suggestions:
- since we are talking about summing of list, one could do:
(a)
inputList 0 + \GSLIST
where 0 + ensures there is an additional neutral element to go around the \GSLIST bug.
Assuming that the list contains at least one element.
(b)
Install listExt http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-8555.html and use LSUM (oh I love that some good work gets visibility also thanks to small commands that were sometimes deemed unneeded). I strongly suggest ListExt if you are dealing often with lists (and I think it is the case). Plus goferlist if you want to get fancy.
