Unable to Restore Faxes!

Someone please help!

I backed up my faxes (logs, stores, folders, files, etc) to my PC.

I imported a previous back up to check for a file.

I tried to restore the backup I created today, and it would not restore my faxes ad their attachments!

I see the coverpages in the backup file created sitting on my PC. But when I use the restore function under Program Setup, it does not restore these files.

Please help!

How to fax from an iPhone or an iPad using a free app for iOS

The Popcompanion app for iOS is a handy tool for scanning and faxing documents from an iPhone or iPad to any national or international fax number, or to multiple fax numbers at once. Popfax built this application to bring a modern faxing experience to businesses and to help professionals stay connected to their colleagues and clients from anywhere, at any time.

Below is a list of some of the key features in Popcompanion 1.7. Every iOS user can rank their importance by their usage experience.

Scan & fax documents within native Apple camera interface
iPhone and iPad users can scan documents using the familiar interface of their native Apple camera and fax them an once to any fax number.

Connection with Photo Library
The app is tightly integrated with other Apple products. Popcompanion 1.7 lets users choose images from their Photo Library and fax them right away. It is so intuitive to fax images that have previously been scanned and saved in the library.

Perspective Crop Tool
It enables users to isolate different planes within an image and crop to correct distortions caused by perspective.

Print faxes through Apple Wi-Fi printers
Wi-Fi Direct Printing allows users to print both sent and received faxes to Apple Wi-Fi printers without adding additional drivers or software on the Apple device, forming a peer-to-peer network between the device and the printer.

Advanced search and management of search resultsThe updated Popcompanion allows users to search faxes in folders as well as to make global search requests in the account: by content, contact name or contact number. The documents from search requests can be deleted, moved to other folders and forwarded directly, all from the search interface.

Drag-down function
This iOS-intuitive function refreshes manually the fax listing, to update changes and check for new faxes.

Offline Mode
The application allows users to create, modify and delete folders, transfer faxes to other folders, manage contacts and groups, send faxes and SMS through PopCompanion even without an Internet connection. PopCompanion 1.7 puts actions in a queue, waiting for the next network connection to synchronize. When the user returns online, the PopCompanion mobile application will automatically synchronize with the Popfax account.

This application can be downloaded from the App Store.

We cannot receive any faxes and get the error '

We've seen this error many times, and in most cases the problem is due to mismanagement of the send and receive logs. You probably have way too many faxes in your Receive Log (or, some corruption) You should read this

Restoring sent and received faxes to fax logs

That's not the way to backup your logs. You copied only the fax images, and not the logs to go with them. This is a common error that is made quite often. Unless you have the original log structure, your data (logs) that link to the actual fax images (fxds, fxrs, etc.) are lost.
