Question Restore option for OE emails?

Dummy me let OE "clean up" my message folders as it prompted me upon logging in a few days ago. What happened was my whole inbox and most of my sent and deleted files got sent way down in the depths of my Dell to:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{8D32DF8B-D3B8-4783-A0C5-FE37E2FC8659}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

All of my old inbox folders are there listed as .dbx files.

Is there any way any of you know to simply restore this back to the way it was? It was not broke and I'm kicking myself for letting it "help" me when I liked it just the way it was. I can't search folders or pull up letters from my sent files. Not good for me at all! Any helping this fool??

You should be able to import them using the file import menu. Another option if that doesn't work is to open that folder, and drag them all back where you want them.
