How to get list of WSUS approved updates from dead server.

I had a WSUS server v 3.0 on a Windows 2003 server.

The server can't be booted up anymore and the only thing i can do is retrieve some files off the hardrive

So i rebuilt a new server and installed WSUS 3.0 sp2

What I need to know is what file holds all the information of all the WSUS updates that were approved or declined?  I have about 2700 updates and don't remember what was approved or declined.

The mdf and ldf files that i found had a date of last modified on JUL 2007 so i don't think thats it.

yeah i read these articles and doesn't help me find the DB files are where they were located, because it wasn't put into a default destination.

I went ahead and just approved all the updates again.  This problem can be closed.
