Few years back, when the Ethereum started, I downloaded "geth" for Windows and started mining. I had it running 24/7 for several months with my (then) top of the line VGA.
After noticing that the Electricity bill was very high, and I realized that I cannot compete in a country with that expensive electricity, I stopped it. However, I kept all the generated files locally.
Now I have a folder structure of: /Ethererum /chaindata /ethash /geth /chaindata /ethash /nodes /nodes
First it looks like I have a copy of folders, so I had it running in /Ethereum and at some point I had another instance running in /Ethereum/geth
Under both "chaindata" folders there are ~60K files of "dddddd.ibd" files and some others like CURRENT, LOCK, LOG, LOG.old, MANIFEST-xxxxxxx.
I do not remember having an account, or wallet. Just had it mining.
Now I am on Linux, installed geth and tried to run it with "geth --datadir "/Ethereum"
When I did that, I am getting tons of logs like this:

Is there any way to retrieve and resume my work? What can I do from this point on?
