Well you could try EEtransfer. Then you can transfer the packages using
Zmodem and terminal software. I have used this combination for the more
stubborn packages. As for the backing up, if you use a tool to turn the
"backup bit" back on using something like Package manager which is part
of Newt Case then you can backup the packages as usual.
