Rename Database

After installing BCM, can I rename the database? I realize that I should have

given it a proper name at the time of install, but I accepted the default

name.

Do I have to create a new db and then import my information into the the new

db? (It would be a lot easier if I could just rename it.)

I found a way to rename the database, but I am wondering if there isn't a

better way. Here's what I did...

I backed up the database. I then closed Outlook and navigated to my database

files in the Business Contact Management folder and moved the mdf and ldf

files (I didn't want to delete them at this point. I then reopened the

Outlook and Business Contact Manager and created a new database with a new

name. I restored my backup and everything works fine.

Is there a better way?
