Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

I found my scans in a folder called HPSCANS on the USB Stick.

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

My flash drive was inserted into the All-In-One 7200 and now the document is unreachable in a .VFS file. What program should I use to open that so that I can have access to all the document on my flash drive? Why did HP change that and make my document unreachable?

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

Just purchased a HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MPF M525dn printer.  When I scan, the file is saved as .HPIMAGE.VFS.  How do I convert a .VFS file to .PDF?

 

Also, is there a way to change the scan default setting on the printer to .PDF?

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

All the printer says is it is creating a PDF file. What ends up is a .VFS file that needs extra software. Why?

 

How do I get this file to s PDF file?

Selvagate says:

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

 

well,  Selvagate,   instead of SCREAMING your often-asked (and often-answered)   question in this forum,   maybe you should try  READING THE THREADS  in the forum.    The answer is given  over-and-over-and-over-and-over.

Re: VFS extension

Ignore the VFS file and look for a folder called 'DCIM'.  Your scan(s) should be inside that folder.

 

Could someone close this thread from further replies?

Re: VFS file conversion; unable to open

Thanks so much for the help.  Can't understand why HP couldn't put this simple instruction in the manual.
