I've ordered a Ti-Nspire a couple of days ago and I've been wondering this. I've had a couple of occurrences where I downloaded an application and it broke my TI-84+ calculator. It ressurected itself, but it also cleared the RAM (at least I have backup groups). Do I also have to back up/archive stuff on the Nspire, or does the RAM never get cleared on a crash?

If the TI-Nspire crashes, you will probably lose what is not saved. Most documents are saved on the file system to the TI-Nspire. Considering that you can only have a Scratchpad and one opened document at any time, you will not lose much. In addition, if your Nspire crashes it is will be due to that open document. Thus, the most you will lose will most likely be what is in the Scratchpad.
My TI-Nspire CX CAS rarely crashes due to normal use. However, I can forcibly make it crash due to a replicable bug when on the differential equation editor. I would not be too worried about losing a significant amount of data.
