I had to do a clean install of Windows 10 recently, so I made full Backups with Acronis and Reflect as well as a file copy of everything. The only issue left is Windows FAX & Scan. It stores the files in folders located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows NT\MSFax, so I just copied all the old files there but they do not show in the fax software. all of the old files have unusual file names like:
and the new ones that I made by using the program to send faxes look like this:
in both sets of files, everything after "$201" differs in every file.
I renamed one old file to match the new filenames like this:
Copied it to the Sent Items Folder, restarted the computer - does not show up. I then tried removing the fax and scan feature and restarting, then enabling it, no help.
MS support says there must be some kind of database but nobody knows where it is. Help...
