I have managed to drop an SQL express 2008 database, that I accessed using SQL Management studio.
I don't have a backup of the database created through Management Studio or SQL, but I do have a disc copy of my entire c: drive made prior to a machine rebuild 4 weeks ago (A previous installation of the dropped database did exist at this stage). The disc backup contains all the databases (2) and versions, that I require.
Can I restore the databases from copies of raw files form a backup disc? If so is this complicated? Which files would I need to be copy and to where?
