Can't re-link? Seriously? [SOLVED]

I had a hard drive failure and subsequently had to install FTM 2012 again once I put the new drive in place.
Fine, no problem... until I opened one of my trees, which I thankfully keep on a file server instead of my local drives. I open it, and see it's not linked to ancestry.com any more.
No problem, it's the exact same data right? So I'll re-link it. WRONG
Can't be done. I apparently have to re-download all 12 of my working trees from Ancestry and create completely new sets of files.
Are you kidding me? My current folder is over 10 gig worth of data, and now I have re-download all of that, because somebody didn't think that things like this might happen?
I'm glad linking exists to begin with, but it's been one buggy piece of junk after another for the last several versions, and now this time consuming pain in the rear.. they always eventually get things worked out, but I don't think I want to play bug tester for them anymore...
