Can't find my database in ACT v. 10

I lost my hard drive.  Fortunately, I had my ACT! database on a thumb drive.  I have installed v. 10 on the new computer but I cannot get it to find the database (on the thumb drive) and open.  Can anyone help?

Re: Can't find my database in ACT v. 10


Do have a backup of the database (.zip file) or the actual database files (.adf, .alf, .pad, database files) on your thumb drive? Also what is the issue or error you are seeing when you try to open your database? Are you opening it directly from the thumb drive (you don't want to do this) or have you copied it locally to your computer?
