computer crashed...help!!!!

My computer crashed and I was only able to recover info from hard drive. When I loaded database on my personal computer it is in there but not in the layout I was using, which causes me to not have valuable info. I have the database on personal computer in the right layout but data is old. Is there a way of syncing them to update info on the one in the proper layout? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Bill

The layouts are part of the database but are in the supplemental files area. If you only recovered the ADF and ALF files from the old hard drive, they would not include the layouts. They would be located in <database name> Database Files\Layouts.
