where are you putting them? saving them to the ramdisk isn't going to help you much....

I guess this post needs moving to the DSL-N section?

On my USB stick installation of DSL-N rc4 , the boot partition mounts as /cdrom and is read-only, even for root. This may mean that if you only have one partition, the backup will not work.

You could try creating a second partition and setting the backup/restore to work from there.

Assuming the boot partition is sda1, you could either:

1. Set up back/restore to sda2 via the control panel.

2. Use emelFM to copy them to (say) /mnt/sda2/download
