Backup provision on SD Card
I'm new to the forum but about to purchase a Motorola XT890 and if the funds will stretch, a 32gig SD card.
One of the reasons I'm going for a phone with SD card is to use part of the card for an alternative backup for some of my windows data files. Some of those that I can't afford to loose, and it just gives me further peace of mind having the files in an alternative location.
Now I'm trying to frame my question correctly:
Do I have to go to the extremes of having an extra partition on the card to store this date ?
At the moment the files exist on a Truecrypt volume on a usb key attached to my car keys, but there's no reason why I couldn't just copy the volume to the phone SD card I suppose.
The encrypted volume is now 12.6 gigs, so it's a healthy size to clog up the phone storage, well nearly half of it !
I've seen mention that a 64 gig SD card will work in some phones once it's formatted, but has anyone had success with this ?
