Elements Organizer: Missing files after restore

I backed-up my PSE9 (about 6000 photos) and restored to a New location (a folder in Dropbox).

On opening the organiser I found that about 500 photos were listed as missing. These photos are not included in the New folder. I have a separate copy of the photos and I can copy the files one by one into the New folder and the photo then appears correctly in the organiser.

Problem is that the missing photos are scattered through some 1000 folders so I have to manually write down the folder path and file name for each of the 500 missing files and then manually copy the files into the New folder. This will take many hours of careful work. Is there a quick way to do this?

Also can you please explain why the restore appeared to lose the 500 files?
