ACT! by Sage 2010 Version 188.8.131.52, Hot Fix 1
The hard drive hosting the database went out. We have several general backups of the C:\ drive, but do not have a database .zip file created using the backup utility from ACT!
I have located the .pad file (which I can edit per instruction on the support site), and the xxx-database files folder, but can't locate an .adf file.
Since I need to open this on a different computer (the backup files are on an external hard drive), how do i go about assembling all the pieces?.

Grrrr....They should put in big, flashing red letters a warning that backing up all your computer data does not, in fact, back up anything useable for ACT!
I have an older ACT! specific backup with the .adf and .alf files, but the data is older.
Is there any way to combine those so I can actually open the database with the newer data?
