How do I find BCM data file?

I'm recovering from a hard drive flame-out on my laptop. Since I subscribe to
Carbonite's back-up service I've been able to restore my .pst files, but
can't identify my BCM data file to select it for restoration. Anybody know
the name of the file?
Thank you.

The BCM database file (.mdf) is typically in this folder:
Xp: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data
\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager
Vista: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Business Contact
Manager

Thanks, Luther - same problem here...'Lost' BCM Data. Found them where you
said they would be - but how do I now move them back into Outlook? I can't
open the file because Windows doesn't know which application created it.

MDF files are Sql Server database files. You need to attach the
database to BCM's sql server instance.

Here's an example:
