I agree. I got my 32MB SD card for only GBP 12 on eBay. An original Palm
card would have cost about 4 times as much.

Okay, so here is my point again: I don't need a back-up of my HDD files so
badly. If I have the data saved in two separate places, then I'm fairly
safe. I want to copy data from the build-in Palm memory to the SD card.

Is there a hack maybe? Can I use Filez, for example, to copy some specific
data files to the SD card? If so, which ones?

I don't back these files up specifically. Twice a week I get a listing of
all recently modified files on the hard drive. I then zip them all up and
send the archive to an FTP server.
