Warn about failure to create backup
If the archive/ directory is not writable, no backups can be made. To make matters worse, there is no warning, so the users thinks he has made a backup, but can't download it.
Related, if there is a problem like this, there should be a huge warning immediately after installing, so that it can be fixed before it leads to problems.

You could check main/admin/system_status.php as an admin, You can see there some warnings.
We should show that info in the admin settings a red icon next to the "System Status" link with a number.
Telling the admin that there's a problem in the portal.
System status (3!)
In fact we should work in a notification class because right now we have to hack the code in order to show notifications to users ...

- Status changed from Needs more info to New

Bah, let's move this to the next version, it's not that urgent and I'm definitely not motivated enough to go through the notification class right now but yes, we should find something like that.
The notification class has been described in more detail in some task or wiki around here, but it did not include anything like putting an alert for system warnings.
