Keys corrupted, have old Bitbay folder, need to reimport


My system has the following specifications

QT Wallet, Client Wallet (and version) or Web wallet: 1.37b
Operating System and version: Windows 10 64-bit 1903
If web wallet browser name and version:
If desktop wallet (Qt or Client) block # of your client and # of connections:

The problem I am having is …

So my marketplace client was again stuck at 97% synced and never finishing. I tried adding nodes and it didn’t end up working so I moved the entire folder to the desktop and then reinstalled the marketplace client. I then went to reimport my keys and it says they are corrupted. Not sure how that is possible since they have sat on a server volume for years without issue. In fact I just used them a while ago to test out another client and they worked fine.

So long story short I have the entire Bitbay folder on my desktop and the marketplace client has finished syncing the blockchain but I need to get my keys back in so I don’t lose my BAY. How can I best do this without trashing my data?
