I got bitten by the Compact Message bug and am looking at my restore options. I have a backup from yesterday of the database, and a backup of the messages from a year ago. Is there a way to mix them?

You can mix them, old messages will have their bodies, new ones will not...

Can the messages with no bodies then be removed easily somehow?

Ok, this seems not to be working. I copied the old msg_1 and private files into an empty messages folder and the bodies are still not showing up. Anything else I have to do?

That's all that you need to do, keep in mind recent message will be without bodies.
