Restore Dockers after USB Flash Replacement

I accidentally damaged my usb flash drive and replaced it.  Once I get my license issue resolved what's the best way to restore my dockers.

Just before my flash drive was damaged, I was in the process of replacing my cache drive, I backed up the app data via the community plugin backup/restore. When I was opening up my server to replace the drive, I accidently hit the back of the server..or more specifically hit the flash drive which broke it.  I never backed up my flash drive but have an older copy of it which has the config folder...which may be a bit out of date....should I start from scratch or copy that folder over?


Do I start up the server and assign the new drive to the cache, then start the array?

Then do a restore of my app data using the community plugin back up and restore? 

After that should I go to the install previous plugs and reinstall all my dockers?  


Not sure the exact process.  


I have an older copy

Just want to add that I do have a recent diagnostics zip file from last week.  Can I just copy that folder from the zip file to the new flash drive?

If you were using the appdata backup plugin, then odds on you were also using it to create a backup of the flash drive.  To restore the docker apps, you technically only require the appdata back, but ideally you also want the contents of /config/plugins/dockerMan/ from the flash back and restore that onto the replacement flash.

Oddly enough I didn't back up the flash drive.  I selected no for flash when I did the backup.  I'm kicking myself for not selecting yes.   


Anyhow I'm sort of backup.  My new ssd cache drive is coming up 

Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout


Not sure what how to resolve this....any idea?


Edit: Nevermind, just noticed I didnt' scroll down far enough...formatting it now..

Ran into a slight problem.  Previous to replacing my cache drive and damaging my usb flash I did a backup of my appdata via community backup and restore. When I now go into Restore to restore my appdata, it doesn't show up. How do I restore the appdata? Can I just manually copy it over or does it have to be done via restore?
