    Hi chaps

    I have ordered a new 1GB SD card for my Ipaq 4150 to replace my current meagre storage.

    What is the best way to transfer the data over ?

    My PC has a card reader - is it a simlpe matter of taking the existing data, copying to a folder on my PC, inserting the new card and copying it all back ?

    This sounds too easy if this is the case...

    It is not so much the data, as in individual files, but more application data such as for Tomtom Navigator 5 - would this all work as normal ?

    Or am I faced with installing it all again ?


    Any advice would be appreciated.


    Many thanks

    Yep, it really is that easy.

    Tom Tom map data etc. will copy across just fine. Just in case there are any hidden files in your other data, open Tools > Folder Options > View > Hidden Files & Folders & select Show Hidden Files & Folders before copying.
