    Thank you Ruffin. Do you know if this printer stores data that could reveal previously printed documents?

    Any thing is possible. However not aware of any print library, where print documents maybe stored.
    May still be on your hard drive, but no idea how to access such.

    Hi Ruffin,

    Tried all that you suggested, no files found in spooler and no change to configuration.

    Many thanks anyway for your help
