Ran fsck, now all files are in lost+found

So, I moved a RAID5 device between a FreeBSD 6.0 machine to fresh FreeBSD 7.0
machine. When I attempted to mount the device the OS complained that the disk
had not bee unmounted properly -- figuring it was probably correct, I diligently
dropped to single user mode and ran fsck on the disk.
I ran 'fsck -t ufs -y'. all seemed fine and dandy until I tried to remount the
volume after bringing it back to multi-user mode. The disk space was occupied,
but it all resided in lost+found with names like : #0000001 , #0000002
etc... !! Each file was multiple gigabytes worth of data without file
structures (as far as I could tell)
Is there an way to recover from this problem ? I would be losing quite a lot
of data, any help you could give would be appreciated.
