Quickbooks connection

I had to backup a pc in order to re-image the pc and I now have to re-connect the Quickbooks data.  I installed Quickbooks 2012 and I do see the databases on the desktop, but I some how need to connect it back to the server, but I don't know how?  I'm assuming that I may need to connect, via a mapped drive, but I'm not sure?

You are saying that the database is on the desktop, so you shouldn't need to connect to a server.

Just open QuickBooks and select "Open or restore and existing company file"

Let me know if that works.

You can re-map a drive or not. All you need to do is run QB, Open an Existing Company, and browse to the location where the data file is.

I suggest you search the user's C: drive and the server for *.QBW files to find the location.
