    How to recover SQL pastel evolution data from flash drive

    Can anyone recover SQL pastel evolution data from the backup on the server.
    We had a problem with space on the server and a server upgrade was done, files were saved but it seems now that were are not able to open the saved files
    And therefore need assistance to recover the data

    The drive was formatted, I have the files saved on a flash drive

    If your database name was "company", for example, you should have two files on your flash drive, named "company.mdf" and "company.log.ldf".

    In order to access the database, you need to first attach the database to the server, using Pastel Evolution Database Management - after saving the two files onto the server, go to Database...Attach Database and browse for "company.mdf".
