This question was asked once before but I could not find the answer. I
justpurchased a SD card for my Ipaq. Is there any way to "point" the
MyDocuments folder to the SD card?

I don't just want to do a backup, I know how to do that. I would like all
future documents that are saved to the MyDocuments folder to go to the SD
card.

Thanks

Joe

Not a big problem.

1. Create a My Documents folder there.
2. If you see in the directory of the card a file called "Ignore My
Documents" or something similar, delete it.
3. On word, excel, and notes, go to the Open File list, there choose the
options entry in the menu, and change the saving place to "Storage Card", or
SD Card, or whatever it is called.

In other software that are not part of the Pocket PC OS, you should find
where to change that.

See the other post about "how" but wanted to make sure you're aware that
ActiveSync doesn't sync the My Documents on a card. There is a third
party application called MightySync that can add that function.

Also Notes are only converted to Outlook notes if they are in the main
memory MD--if on the card, even synced via MightySync, they will appear
on the pc as native .pwi files (which the version of Word I'm running
can open but apparently that's not always the case).
