To follow up on Peter's suggestion: It might be worth trying to make
'Galaxy Data Libraries' for all the old individual datasets in your new
Galaxy installation. This way, you will have sort of easy access to the
old datasets in you new set-up.
Since the datasets are in distinct folders (database/files/000,
database/files/001, database/files/002, etc), you can use the option:
"Upload files from filesystem paths". It will 'auto-detect' the file
format for you. Though this will take a very, very long time, since you
have up to 1000 files per directory (you might wanna split the
directories into smaller chunks). Also, it won't work with complex

As Hans-Rudolf said, if you really have lost the database and its
backups, there is not much you can do.
If you have just a few very valuable datasets that have to be
recovered, I would look at the file dates (guided by the automatically
incremented dataset numbers), sizes, and look at the data to check
the contents (everything will be named *.dat as the extension,
other than complex datatypes).
