Is there a way to save contact information from Microsoft Business Contact Manager if only the ".MDF" file exists?

Last Modified: 2016-01-03
Microsoft Business Contact Manager 2007 was installed on my PC and the hard drive crashed. A technician was able to save the ".MDF" file but either there wasn't an ".LDF" file or it was somehow missed. I purchased a new Windows 10 computer and reloaded Outlook and Business Contact Manager

By the size of the ".MDF" file I assume it contains the actual contact information. Is there some way to access the contact information?
