How to remount existing folder to newly partitioned devices?

we have encounted I/O error and then managed to replaced disk, but we have unable to recover the data.
During this period, as temporary work around we have re-created the 3 directories (/export1, export2, export3) to /
Now, how do i transfer or mount all those files from /export1, export2 & export3 to the newly partitioned logical devices that we have created?
If I will remount it to /export1, export2 and export3, this will erase whatever files i have with my tempo directories...

IF your newly created partitions are automounted, simply copy the data over to them from your temp directories. If they are NOT mounted, then you'll need to create the appropriate entries in etc/fstab. Whether or not they automount is dependent on which distro you are using.
