PocketPC Sync Folder

After doing a hard reset on the PocketPC, it can be difficult to get ActiveSync to use the SAME sharing name that was used before when creating a new Partnership. Here are some things that can help:
- Make sure you rename the old folder (e.g. {FOLDERNAME}BU) before the "create a new partnership" dialog comes up
- Delete the old partnership (since the desktop will recognize it as a new machine)
- To control the name of the folder, you have to control the name of the PocketPC. This can be set ON THE POCKET PC in settings / system / devide / about / DeviceID / Device Name
- Check the values in RegEdit of My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\Partners
- Check the profiles which are stored in the folder specified by My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\Partners\xxx\DataFolder
