Hi all

Exactly which files do you have?
  • db.* (database) files?
  • *,v and *.gz (archive) files?
  • checkpoint.* files?
  • the journal file?

The two vital components of a Perforce server are the database files and the archive files.  If you don't have both of those two, your history is not accessible (the database is the index/structure and the archive files are the content).  The checkpoint and journal files work as a backup for the database files.
