Received fax window (and digital fax folder) is empty, but faxes are coming in.

HP Officejet 5255
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am receiving faxes, but I can't view them on the digital fax folder I set up and they also aren't showing on my received fax window in the manage fax settings.

 

I originally set up the digital fax to not print faxes, to only save them digitally only, but there were none in my folder, yet they showed on my printer LCD screen on the printer when I went to the reprint screen.  (No, none of them were color, only black & white.) The folder is set up properly (it worked twice on the very first day) and I've re-ran the wizard and done the test several times since then.  Each time it tells me it's working. I changed the setting and told it to also print the fax as well and now they are printing, but still not saving in the folder. (Again, they are all black & white, not color.) Also, I noticed that under 'Manage Fax Settings' in the 'Fax History - Received Faxes' window none of my faxes are showing at all. I'm wondering if this is related to them not being saved in the digital folder. It's as if the fax machine itself finds them (because they are all in the history on the printer's LCD screen) but they aren't showing on the computer, except I can hit the print history button on the computer and it will print the date, time & number of pages received (12 within the past couple days.) I've uninstalled everything and reinstalled with the same results. Any ideas?
