Re: Can't back up data

That is correct, you need to exit the WinFax Controller before you can back up any of the WinFax specific files, such as your phonebooks and send/receive logs. If you use the WinFax backup, it will shut down the Controller first before attempting to back up the files. If this is not happening, then you have a problem somewhere else.

I suggest you disable the WinFax Service in Control Panel, Admin,Services. Stop the Service and set it to DISABLED for startup mode

I deleted video from my sony sr47 handycam, it now shows a broken icon where the video was, can I recover these?

I have had success with this file recovery program called asoftech data recovery... Download the data recovery program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the file recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.
