    Restoring database from files in C:/.../mysql/ ?

    I recently had to change the hard drive on my server, reinstall the os and everything. I still have the old hard drive with all the files connected to the server, however I am not sure how I should safely restore my databases to the new hard drive.

    Since their is no current installation of mysql on the server I can not make a backup of them like you normally would using mysqldump. All I have are the actuall files on the server. I can see under C:/mysql/data, it appears my databases are stored there. Can I just copy the data folder to the new installation of mysql?
