Re: ACT cannot find a database

It looks like it did not backup all your files. If you use ACT backup it will create a zip file with all your data in it. If you just copy the files or use zip etc directly to make a backup it will not backup the active part of the sql database (ADF) which is the part you are missing. It maybe the other 2 databases that did copy were not active in SQL when doing the backup.

If you simply copied the files onto the flash drive try searching for .adf files just to see if they got that far.
