Library Restore 6.0.0 Windows 10 > Catalina

Hello guys, would be super happy if someone could help me here

Here is the issue, i have ran recordbox off my 128GB external drive on my windows PC, the Drive is FAT32 to allow compatability with MacOS and i also export my recordbox library to the drive so it can be used plugged into CDJS (the files are not duplicated)

recently my windows PC died, and i cant access recordbox on it to export the libary, however looking at my 128GB FAT32 Drive, it has the libary Database on it, however when i restore on recordbox it doesnt give me the option to select the master.db or master.backup.db files, i am only able to access file ending with .edb, so ive tried changing the .db extensions to this but recordbox sais it cant read the file or its uncompatable

when i bring in the other files with .edb like for example datafile.backup.edb it loads my library from recordbox 5 before i mitigated to recordbox 6, but does not say its an old library, is dated for the day before i upgraded and no tunes that i added in recordbox 6 are there... seems to be that pioneer was not fully ready to launch recordbox 6 as i have the FULL DATABASE and all Database files which are dated last edited may 13 (the day my laptop died)

recordbox was not running when my computer died, its unrelated, i had closed recordbox and shut down for the night before this issue happened, the computer never booted again since the AM on the 14th

Any instructions you may have found to restore a backup edb file were from rekordbox 5; the database in rekordbox 6 is different.

Did you migrate the rekordbox 6 library to the external drive as well?
