What is the best way to back up your apps that are running from the memory stick using PowerRun if the memory stick goes out on you?

Don't know if it's the best way, but BackupBuddy for Windows has the option to backup MS, in additon to RAM, to your PC.

What I do, once a week or so, is open MSImport and copy everything to my PC's hard drive. (You can browse the card through 'My Computer' ~ you don't have to use MS Export.)

I do the same by putting a special folder in PC hard drive called "My MS" under "My Documents" with subfolders for different MSs (Backup, MP3a, MP3b, Main, General, etc.). On each MS backup folders, there are 2 folders with the dates of the MS backup were taken. I keep the last 2 weeks of MS backup and purge the rest. For example for the Main MS that contains apps, dictionaries, maps, pictures, etc., I would have a directory tree something like this:
My Documents/My MSs/Main/, which contains two files: 040403 and 041103
At the end of every week, I just launch MSImport, build a new folder with the current date in the appropriate folder in PC, then copy and paste the removable drive content to the new folder, and purge the oldest date folder off the PC.

Yes, make rolling backup copies on your hard drive in separate folders. I make a backup copy every day or so, but then I make lots of changes. At one time I tried Blue Sync, it worked, but slow as molasses. Using MS Import is much faster.
Yes, the memory stick can get corrupted, so backing it up is NOT a waste of time.

I back up my MS with BackupBuddy daily. Nothing lasts forever...
