    No way that I know of. But you just gave me the brilliant idea to subdivide my backup folder into subfolders based on release numbers.

    to build on that, the way I do it is when I install a new release, I update the text file I created (ReleaseHistory.txt)  in the same folder with a new entry.
    And in parallel, I also add the corresponding release # to the name of the last backup prior to the update.  So I have two ways of identifying.

    If you know the exact time and date that you did the upgrade and then look at the date/time of the backups, you could determine it from that information.
    I think that both RJS & BK's suggestions have a lot of merit.
