Does anyone have extensive experience with salesforce?

A client of mine has recovered a database from what he says was a salesforce installation on a server at his business. He wants to recover the contacts and whatever else he can from this.

I've looked into it, and it appears to be possible using salesforce.com, SQL, and DBAmp.

Before I burn hours of my time trying to make this work (I've setup a trial salesforce.com account, and downloaded a trial version of DBAmp) I thought I would see if there was anyone here that's done something similar, or could offer any insights?

Cheers!

but i stayed in my safe little rut, so i know nothing.

Can't just log into the database and look in the tables?

Yeah that is why I am confused. I'm thinking it must be real old

when you say 'recovered a database' is it some kind of proprietary salesforce file? Or is it some kind of common export format that could potentially be imported by other software?

This guy founded company X

They were running this salesforce or whatever

He's since left the company, but now that it is in liquidation he got the "salesforce" databases back and wants to try and retrieve the data.

The other confusing thing is that the database is called rwlivedb, so I'm wondering if realworks is somehow involved
