ACT!2009 Database restore issue ADF & ALF Files but no current PAD file

Had to rebuild my Vista PC.  Files backed up on Carbonite.  Have current files for ADF and ALF, but no current PAD file. I do have a PAD file from several months ago.  Can anyone suggest a fix, otherwise it is back to a 6 month old version.  THANKS!

The PAD is just a Pointer to the ACT! Database. It contains no data itself

Open ACT!
File | Open
Change File Type to ADF and open that ... it will rebuild the PAD
