re installing azure ad connect

Last Modified: 2020-10-10

got Azure Ad connect sync installed in windows server 2012 which is DC. sync was going good. and stopped working recently. could not repair the program to make it work

so i have uninstalled the azure ad sync, while doing it -   "i unchecked also uninstall supporting components" ( so it did not uninstall any sql server settings)

when i try to install it again using express settings, it says "programfiles\microsoft azure adsync\data" the files are still there and it needs to be empty.

can i select customize settings"" when installing AD connect again , and specify the "use an existing sql server"... will it just start working ??
