Does anyone have any recommendation for software/hardware to help with this?

The only thing i found was Codemeter. Has anyone seen any reviews for this?

I use eWallet. It runs on Windows and synchronises to mapped drives, Internet storage or a Windows Mobile or Palm OS device. So I always have a copy with me...

Thanks fritasm, I was hoping for something that is usable with a memory stick rather than a pocket PC
(I’ll buy one when they can run Excel VB scripts on the pocket pc). What’s your
back up plan should you loose your pocket PC (heaven forbit..)?

I use KeePass, a SourceForge open source password manager. I have a copy of the executable on my memory stick and keep the password file synchronised using Windows Briefcase so I can use it anywhere. Works well for me. Also has a great password generator built in.

Well I wrote it there: the software runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Mobile and Palm. So I have it on my desktop, synchronising to a file on my server, and also synchronising to a file on my Pocket PC. Regardless of where I change a record, the change is replicated through to my desktop, server or Pocket PC.

Also, I have an backup to an external 1TB drive with multiple copies and RAID 1, plus an online backup to the cloud, through Carbonite.

A lot of backups, don't you think?

By the way, there's a version of eWallet that runs from USB flash memory.

Yes Fritsam, the backup is impressive. I assume the pocket PC password info is super encrypted, in case is is lost?

I will have a closer look at ewallet for the USB version thanks.

TinyTim thanks for your suggestion also.
