Help! - can't play videos imported from external backup after hard drive crash

Okay, so my hard drive crashed, but I had backed up my video files to an external hard drive, so no problem, right?

But after I restored the files form the external drive, the files on my hard drive are just empty shells of their former selves. The file sizes are tiny (like 50 kb for a file that should 50 mb), and a lot of them have .bup extensions that they didn't have before. And obviously they won't play.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix the problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
