RE: Rescan 3.16 vs Rescan 4.3
I was using ResScan 3.16 until I reinstalled Windows recently. Then, I installed ResScan 4.2, which seems exactly the same as 3.16. There's no advantage to upgrading unless you switch to a new machine that 3.16 doesn't support. Version 4.2 added support for several S9 VPAP and ASV models, and dropped support for some very old machines such as the S6 series.

Hi tide2bama, welcome to the forum!

When I was using ResScan v3.16 years ago I would occasionally lose previously-downloaded detailed data by mistakenly clicking on "Overwrite" instead of "Discard" while downloading data. I learned to be very careful to only select Discard.

Now I am using v4.1, and recently, for the first time in years, I again made the mistake of clicking Overwrite instead of Discard, but I did not lose any previously-downloaded detailed data.

But still I am not chancing it - I still try to always select Discard.

Take care,
--- Vaughn

The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

I just downloaded rescan and works pretty good
I think I'll probably use sleepyhead and rescan from now on
