    So a client phoned me today about their server at work that crashed.
    They had sharepoint on their server and they never made any backups.I can see the sharepoint folder in program files/microsft sql/sharepoint I can see the file containing the data and .mdf files.
    Their IT guy never set the hdd's to raid 1 so they dont have a failover drive.
    I reinstalled WIn server 2008 on the other hdd and installed sharepoint. I need to know how to attach their old sharepoint database so that I can access the old files on sharepoint?
    Or does anyone know how I can extract the documents from the .mdf files?

    Does anyone know how to do this?
