    Unanswered: Restore from phisical copy of disk (datafiles?)

    Hi,
    I have formatted my server because of serious problem and i did not backup my database. I have only a phisical copy of the disk containing data on another disk. How I can recover my db? Thank you in advance.

    What specifically do you have?

    Did you take a dump of the database?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    My guess is that you'll tell us that you have the mdf and ldf files, but no current backups...

    Is that correct?

    And is MSDE now installed or not on another box?

    Did we get a little frustrated with the server there, Brett?
