Hi,

I am using Vista and Outlook 2007.
When I was using Outlook 2007 and XP, I could just copy the whole MDF file
to my backup drive, and if anything went wrong, I just copied and pasted this
file back to the BCM directory and everything would be fine. It seems I can't
do this on Vista.

So now I have the MDF file which was used in outlook 2007 and XP, and now I
have outlook 2007 on Vista and I cannot open this file.

I'm not a geek and I have MS SQL Server 2005 with 3 configuration tools, but
no SQL Server Studio or anything like that.

So for a geek like me, how do I get BCM to recognise my MDF file again,
especially as I dont' understand the what "%localappdata%" means in your
reply to Richard below.

Thanks much

You probably need to attach the MDF file to the sql instance.
