My initial idea was to get back on to the old hard-drive reverse the mv
command that moved the bin directory, then reboot with the old hard-drive as
master again and hope it was working again.

However, at this point I'll even accept just getting a copy of a few of the
directories, like my database and web files.

I gather this is not the way to do that.
