    What if there are no BAK files?

    The data must reside some where.

    Please HELP!

    If there are no .BAK files, it means something is wrong! Navigate to C:\Program Files\The Monticello Corporation\MSSQL.X\Data\ and you should see a bunch of .MDF and .LDF files. These are the raw database files that you can send us and we can convert them back into a .BAK file for you. Just use the link at the top to create a new support request.
