Images and Links stopped working after moving to new server

I had the software setup and configured on a Windows Server 2003 computer where several posts were made to the blog at Pictures were included in all of the posts to date and a custom theme was designed to fit the blog into the rest of the site construct. Our server administrator recently moved our web site to a Windows Server 2008 machine and the blog naturally came with it. The directory was given appropriate permissions and established as an application in IIS7 on the new server, but no longer displays images (the files are in the directories created by the original post creations) for old posts or new ones. Additionally, when clicking on the Month name links (i.e. October) a 404 error results.

I backed up the blog site and completed the upgrade process in an attempt to "start fresh" and even using the standard theme had the same problems. I have restored from my backup as not to lose the data or user accounts already established, but appreciate any help in resolving these issues.
