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

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?
