Restore an Outlook BCM Database

Restore a BCM Database

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.

  1. Create a new database in BCM, naming it the same as your old database.
  2. Exit Outlook and stop the BCM service in Admin Tools, Services.
  3. Replace the new database files with your old ones, making sure the file names are identical.
  4. Restart the BCM service and Outlook.
