There should be a tally file that is used to start the restore process which is created when making the backup, its usually associated with the name you gave to the backup, something like Backup.tly

This file should be on the one of the 5 DVD's, usually the first one, the process would be to use the restore backup command (File>Restore Catalog from CD, DVD or Hard drive...) and point it to this file.

Hope that helps,
