Are you looking for the old archives in the "Archive View" ? If so, Drive Backup only knows about the archives that IT created. But if YOU know about other archives (created under the prior version), you can select "Add Archive" and them manually show the program where that archive is located. From then on it shows up in the Archive view. Is this your problem ? The program doersn't even really need to have prior knowledge of where a prior archive is located. If you need to recover from a crash using the restore CD, (or with the installed program) you can browse around your computer or DVDs and tell it to restore from any archive you can find. I know this works because I deliberately wrang-out every worst-case scenario I could think of when initially evaluating the program. It will even restore from archives on thumb drives.
