Local site recovery from crashed disk?

My main startup drive has crashed so booting up from an external drive. I have found a backup of my files and need to recover some sites that I had created in local.

Can anyone help me in manually transferring my Local sites from my crashed disk to my new computer.

I have found the site folders within the 'local sites folder and copied them over but i can’t see the sites when I launch local.

I’m guessing that the database is stored somewhere else.
Any help would be much appreciated.
