    This should do it.

    I'd love to hear the rationale for why they would ever want the machine configured this way. Makes no sense at all to me

    I've been "isolated" to Ricoh for many years now, but I have heard that some other manufacturers provide that functionality.

    Definitely a bad idea to have the capability; I can seen a ton of scenarios where really nasty things could happen.

    They definitely do.
    While, I'm only dealing with Ricoh myself, I upgraded a customer about 8 months ago to a C3504, and was surprised to find out that's how they were scanning to their old machine that apparently wasn't compatible with Windows 10 (at least according to their previous tech)
    I think the other machine was a Toshiba, but not sure.
    They lived with it for a couple of years. They'd scan to the machine, then copy the file over to a server folder because their concern was with the machine's HDD dying.
    Not exactly the most efficient method

    "Well, the old machine was far less secure and reliable."

    Put that in your proverbial pipe and smoke it, as the saying goes.

    I may be completely misunderstanding what you're asking for, but, if you scan using the scanner classic app, select store file, then scan to HDD, the scans will be accessible through the WIM

    ricoh has a new scan to folder setup tool. ricoh stfconf tool v2.2.6... you can login and download it from the ricoh site. i have used it and it seems to work alright. occasionally it hasn't worked correctly and i just revert to the old school method of setting up scanning. but that tool is pretty easy and straight forward to setup.
