If your control panel doesn't show any tables and sets, but they do exist in the directory, just add them back into the database. Do this from the control panel; click on the green "+" icon of the toolbar and follow your nose.

As a side note, get in the habit of backing up more frequently. If your life is in there it's worth the effort to have a current backup. Also consider something with removable media in case (god forbid)your house burns down. Keep it offsite.

As Steve said, if the physical files exist, then try compacting. They may then suddenly showup.
