Windows 7: How do I restore deleted history in IE8? (I copied the history folder)

How do I restore deleted history in IE8? (I copied the history folder)


So my ie8 got buggy with its history, to solve this I went to Tools->internet options-> delete history.
This solved the bugs.

Now prior to my deletion, I went to C:\->Users->{user name}->app data->local->Microsoft and copied the folder named History (60+ megs).
I pasted it on my F: drive.

Now I'm trying to repaste this info and...Nothing.
I mean, the size of this folder changes from 0 to 60+ megs, but when I double click it only shows "today".

Please help, I've got some pretty important stuff there.

Thank you very much!

The thread reached the 2nd page so I'm bouncing it back up.
No one has any ideas?

I'm completely stuck with my work without my history page.
