Windows 7: Windows Fax and Scan

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Windows Fax and Scan

I just completed a clean reinstall of Win 7 Pro.

All fine except that despite copying all my old faxes back into:

c: programdata - microsoft - windowsnt - msfax - sentitems

the actual faxes do not show up in sent items when i actually run the Windows Fax and Scan utility. Only new faxes I send show up.

Is there another file I should have also updated like an index of some sort?

Help appreciated.

From what I can find, this has been a problem since Vista and is not fixed yet. The work around/suggestion is to move them to another folder and view them with any TIF viewer, like Windows Photo Viewer.
