Recover sent faxes from a crashed Windows 2K3 Server

Hi All,

I have had a Windows 2K3 Server Crash (can't boot it). I manually copied the whole hard drive to a temporary hard drive and have re-installed the server. I have got it back up and running just as it was before the crash except that I don't know how to get back the Sent faxes that appeared in the Sent Items part of the fax console (MS FAX). Is there anyway that I can manually recover these?

Thanks in advance,

Should be able to find it in the following location:
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\MSFax\SentItems

Just navigate to that folder (old hard drive copy) and copy them over to the new folder that was created when you rebuilt the machine.  

Let me know if you need further assistance!

Thanks for that.

Worked a treat. Along with all the tif files in the SentItems dir, there was also a sent fax log (txt file) that I copied over. I had to stop the Fax service to be able to copy it over the existing file.
