Restore the library. Select some files and right click - Library Tools - Rename, Move, Copy and use find and replace to change the drive letter.  For change find c: and replace with d:  Look in the action window to make sure it is right before doing the change.  Do a couple to be sure you get it right, then do the rest of the files.

I hope it's within etiquette to thank somebody six years later for their good advice.
