Restoring Database from a Remote Computer?

I was trying to fix something this morning and ended up restoring my database to 2 weeks ago.  When we went to our tape backup we found out the latest version was from May 1st.  I have an outside guy who synchronized into our database last night and I want to know if I can obtain data from his computer and put it onto our server?  We have ACT 10 with about 15 users.  I sure hate to lose all of that data.

 

I guess I should just use the data and quit trying to be fancy.

 

Thanks for your help.

Are we saying that the most up-to-date database is on the outside 'guys' machine?

If it is you could do a backup and restore to move it across to your main machine.

 

However doing that would mean you'd have a new master database and in turn you would have to create you 'outside guy' a new remote database.

 

The following artcles may help you acheive this:
