Are the files definitely in the correct data directory?  If you open up the
Manager, go to the "Advanced" tab, and click "Show Data Folder" does the
folder that opens up have the files that you copied in there?  (As opposed
to newly created, empty, ones - i.e. check the date/size).

Did you copy two files, called "default_bayes_database.db" and

Could you send us your log file?  It might have some clues about which files
are being loaded.
