Reinstalling Calibre Library

I just did my usual update of Calibre to 0.9.10. I backed up "AppData\Roaming\Calibre" and "Documents\Calibre Library" to a Flash drive. Somehow I goofed and Calibre now starts empty and anew. Which is easiest way to restore this please?

Are you are sure your CURRENT in use Library is using the same location?

Right click the Library Icon: Switch/Create: Use Previously Existing... :<browse to the Documents\Calibre Library folder> : OK

If that folder was empty: Shut down Calibre: Copy the backup into that folders (metadata.db will be in the Calibre Library folder, if done correct)
