Default Noob question, how to sync documents

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all I am new here. I just purchased my first blackberry, a Bold. I got it with the intent of having one device to replace my cell phone, MP3 player & Dell Axim PPC.

The problem I'm having is I want to sync with a folder on my PC that I keep Microsoft Office documents in. I've spent the last week searching this forum and combing through the BB Desktop Manager for a way to do this and am officially stumped.

With the PPC I use Active Sync and it syncs my contacts, calander and documents. Is it possible to use Active Sync with the BB?

any help would be apprecieated.

I use this: Backup Your SD Card For Free With Media Card Sync | BerryReview.com

It's free. Basically you point to a directory on your PC and it will sync files on your BB with that directory. Add files to one side and it will copy it over to the other. It requires a USB connection (but possibly Bluetooth will work), but it's a manual (click the button) sync.

The first time will be slow, especially if you have movies, etc. like I do. After that, it's very fast (unless you are copying new movies). The ONLY downside is when you decide to delete a file, you have to delete it on both sides, otherwise they will just re-sync and you have both files again.

I had to reformat my 4 GB SD card a few weeks ago, fortunately, I had sync'd recently and restoring it was simple.

Edit: This app is a bit 'dumber' than ActiveSync in this regard, as ActiveSync "knows" that a deleted file is "newer" than the other file and will delete the other during sync. This application, on the other hand, just makes the two directories equal, copying over missing files from one side to the other making both sides the same.
