restoring sql db for wordpress from xamp backup

good morning everyone,

So i have been building a wordpress website for a client, using xamp to build it offline. Unfortunately my computer died on me, so i am unable to export an sql file from phpmyadmin as I normally would.

I have managed to recover the full xamp install folder from the dead comp (comp a), and have it on an external drive. I have a fresh xamp install (same version) on the new comp (comp b).

My question is this :- is there any way to restore / rebuild the necessary sql db from these recovered files....?

thanks in advance,
