Rule #1 – Back up your data often! BCM includes a backup utility that makes it easy – use it.
If you don’t have a recent backup, you may be able to recover the data, if you have a copy of the two database files, ending with the extension LDF and MDF.
- Create a new database in BCM, naming it the same as your old database.
- Exit Outlook and stop the BCM service in Admin Tools, Services.
- Replace the new database files with your old ones, making sure the file names are identical.
- Restart the BCM service and Outlook.
