I just bought a new XP computer and want to transfer all sent and received
faxes from Fax Console (XP also) to my new computer. I can find all my
received faxes stored as individual .TIFF files but when I import them into
the new console, they lose all identifying info like date, time, fax number.
I can't locate a file or files for the sent faxes at all. I've looked in:
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\MSFax and the only folders there are Queue and Fax Receive but they're
both empty. I've searched my entire C drive for "fax" but can't seem to find
them. Is there a way to do this or am I out of luck?

Thanks,
gina

Faxes you have received are automatically archived in the Fax Console's
Inbox and faxes you have sent are archived in the Fax Console's Sent Items
Folder. You can easily access and save these folders from Windows Explorer.
The default location of these folders is:

<drive>:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\MSFax\

Simply copy their contents into the same folder in a new installation.
