You can customize the amount of information
that is stored on your Pocket PC using ActiveSync. This tip explains
where to go to adjust these settings.
When you first synchronize with Microsoft«
ActiveSync«, you can select what options you want synchronized. Later,
you can add or remove options by clicking on the ActiveSync icon on
your task bar and selecting Tools, then Options. You
will be presented with the Sync Options. This is where you
select which options you want synchronized with your Pocket PC.
You can further customize these settings by
selecting an option and clicking on the Settings button. You
will be presented with the parameters for synchronizing this option.
An example of an option you may want to change is the Calendar
option, which defaults to all future appointments and only two weeks
of prior appointments. You can customize this to synchronize all
appointments, or none, or anywhere in-between.
Contacts defaults to synchronizing all
contacts. However, you can choose to synchronize only specific
contacts or categories. Tasks defaults to synchronizing only
incomplete tasks while you can choose to synchronize all tasks or some
tasks in the past and future. The Inbox supports the ability to send
only the first 100 lines of each message and only messages that are
less than five days old. You can select to synchronize all or some of
your e-mail depending on your needs.
I recommend that you review your settings
from time to time to avoid running out of memory and store a duplicate
of everything on your desktop. With these features, you are in control
of what is synchronized to your Pocket PC.
