Re: VFS extension

Thank you for saving me additional time and frustration!  I've spent way too much time trying to open this one very important file.  Lost over an hour I didn't have to spare.  Thought it worthwhile to spend an additional few minutes to register & say thanks.  Glad there are so many people smarter than I am:robotfrustrated: out there!

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

I have a Panasonic Lumix camera which saves movies in a VFS file.  How can I open those files?

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

Suggest you read some of the foregoing msgs. This being an HP forum, I can't say with 100% certainty that your Panasonic product works the same way, but with HP the VFS file is NOT where the pics or movies are. Pics end up in a DCIM folder. Look for other files or another folder for your movies; pretty sure the VFS file isn't what you want.

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

It saddens me to watch HP continue it's downward spiral.  No wonder it's most ardent supporters - the A/E community (including my firm) - have deserted the sinking ship.  Your arrogance has cost you your reputation.

 

HOW DO I RE-CONVERT VFS FORMATTED FILES BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL FORMAT?

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

Hello. I understand you would like to open VPS files. I will do my best to assist you! I located this website, which contains information on how to do this. Note that the solution offered is one that HP doesn't support or condone.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. I'm only here to help!

I'm surprised the pics disappear, I beleieve there should be two files, one under HP Scans Folder automatically created and the VFS file perhaps used by HP to convert or load virtually scanning for potential dangers. Not completely sure.

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

VFS, not VPS, though similar, not quite the same. VFS is Virtual File System. VPS is Virtual Private Server.

Hey,

I have included a couple of options for you try. First I have included the document 'A .vfs File Has Been Added to the Memory Card'. If this does not work for you, look for a DCIM folder, and try opening the scanned image from there.

Do either of these options work for you?

Thank you.
