I had a Blue Screen event.

SQL would not start. I had to uninstall and reinstall SQL 2005 plus all the service packs.

I have a full system back up of all the SQL files.

I need to reattach some data bases, in particular the ones relating to Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). How do I do that, please?

In your SQL enterprise manager, after connecting to your instance of SQL, right click on data bases, select the All Tasks option, then select the attach database option. Browse to and select your mdf file, click on OK. Your DB will be attached.

To restore a db, create a new one with the same filenames as the one that you previoulsy backed up and then right click on the new DB, select All Tasks, then backup/restore select the option to restore a DB from a device, select your backup file, and thens set the options to overwrite the original files, and then restore the DB.
