Need to find my database name on my backup flash stick

My Laptop and Desktop both crashed this week and the only backup I have to my database is on a toshiba flash stick. 

I have loaded ACT onto another Laptop and it will upload the database.  The problem is it is asking me for a databse name and password to open it.  I have the password but have no idea what name I used when creating the database.  It is saved on my flash drive as ACT2448 yet the database name is different.  Is there a way to find the database name from my flash files?

I really need some help on this one.

It's the user name and it's most likely your name.
