hate to interrupt the discussion, but....

had noticed a long time ago that backups were made up of 5 ZIP files
when i did a test earlier to see if unzip on the N900 was able to handle
those i noticed that other.zip contained /home/user/fuelpad.db 
alas it was only after sending out my previous answer that i realized that
it isn't part of standard fremantle & that there had thus to be a way to add
files to the standard osso-backup
1st thought was any (db?) file included in /home/user ~:o)
either way, the unzip worked just fine, simply because i never bothered
adding a password to my backups

from unzip -hh i noticed that there is an option funzip password ....
thus maybe it is simply possible to use the password there?

anyway, thanks to all for your inputs & tips ¦:-}

to Estel:
yep, installed backup menu, used it shortly & reflashed both my N900s to get
ride of it :@
with all due respect to Robbie, it's not even ½ backed (up) :mad:
- can't use it to transfer a setup from one device to another, thus
- can't make a *real* restore after a re-flash, neither :mad::mad:

still have the idea in the back of my mind to port partimage & use Nin101's
Rescue OS to make +real+ backups :D
