    That's not where I was going....what I was thinking was a program which managed the placement of files on the SD card with some kind of encryption. That is, ya place a key on the Treo (memory) and one on the card.....if they don't recognize each other, ya can't access the card.

    Then again you can password protect backups to the card so that is one level of protection.

    Yeah you can password protect the backups but I still like the matched "key" thing as it seems much less oversight required.....Key a on Treo (and PC), Key B on card ... if they don't recognize each other then Treo ? finer's PC won't read anything off card.

    FWIW, I've had great success with Butler and my 650. I've specifically tested both the lock feature and the wipe RAM feature, and they worked great....

    you may have been using the old version which didn't work with SMS sent from an email gateway (it required the lock trigger to be the first part of the message which doesn't happen with an email gateway)

    The latest version has remote lock commands which gets round that.
    Let me know if you give it a try and still struggle.
