Restoration problem

description

I am having an issue restoring from a .bak file generated by this program.
 
When I try to restore a sub site back into the environment it was deleted from I get the following error:
 
"Your backup is from a different version of Windows Sharepoint Services and cannot be restored to a server running the current version".
 
It them subsequently deletes the full site collection.

One of the reasons I can think of is that this is caused by patching of the servers. Can you confirm that during the time the backup was created, SharePoint was running on a different patch level than when you are trying to restore?

The backup and restore were done within an hour of each other as we are still in the testing stage with regards to this solution, so there is no possibility that the servers were patched between the two times.
