I have SQL Server installed on my client. I restored a backup from my web server so I could run it locally. I can log into it using MSSM Studio and run queries.

Do I need to do an attach ? What is the attach for? Everything seems to work ok without me attaching

If you are asking about database file attach then we use it generally when moving database to different machines. It is one of the methods for moving the database.
