To restore a copied Steam directory you need the following:

Contents of the Steam/Steamapps/Common directory (your game directories) in place.

The Steam.exe File in the main Steam directory.

You Shouldn't have any other files.

Run Steam.exe to have Steam rebuild the basic other directories.

Once you have the other directories rebuilt, steam has created the appropriate registry entries, and you are logged in: You will have to redownload parts of your games. How much is variable. Some games require a few MB, others require near complete DL depending on the directory verification and copy protection.
