ScanBackup was originally developed for a version that doesn't have GsObjectInventory.  Feel free to use whatever helps.

Sometimes I want to get more items than 200 not because they have little amount of instances, but maybe because even a few of them would indicate a memory leaking. So if those classes I always want to check are not in the 200 then i would have to pay a new #allInstances for each...
