Lost personal folder, data drive reformatted

I built a computer with two hard drives (C: and D) to keep my data on
the D drive. I installed Vista home premium x64 and, with help from
instructions on the Vista Form, I moved my personal folder to the D
drive. JMK appears on the start display. I created a folder in JMK
called JMusic (not My Music) for my music files and copied two folders
(M1 and M2) to JMusic with several thousand mp3 files (many hours
invested in categorizing, prioritizing and tagging with Music Match).

I installed Media Monkey (which keeps its database in)
C:\user\usernam(JMK)\appdata\local\mediamonkey\mm. db
and ADDED the files in M1 and M2 to the library and converted
MusicMatch data to MediaMonkey data base. I made a backup of JMusic and
the database after making more additions and changes to the MediaMonkey
library. *All worked well UNTIL*:

My D drive got corrupted and had to be reformatted. I copied the backup
JMusic to the D drive but MediaMonkey can't find the files when I try to
play them. Checking the properties of a file in the MediaMonkey library
(datapase) indicates it is looking for the file in:

[Data HD D]\JMK\JMusic\artist folder\song.mp3

I suspect the Personal folder links are screwed up. What steps should I
take to reload JMusic backup so the pointers in the database find the
file on the D drive? Note, changes were made to the library after the
backup was made and I hope to recover them. Simply recreating the
library will lose them. I also suspect I need a lesson on how Vista
handles Personal Folders
