problem restoring Lightroom catalog backup

To cut a long story short, I'd been using LR3.6RC and had to reinstall but reinstalled 3.5. When I pointed LR at my backup catalog stored on a separate drive, it appeared to have lost all its history of adjustment. Is this because the backup catalog was created by v3.6 and isn't backward compatible with 3.5??

ps the previous adjustments are present just not listed anymore.

Have you tried re-applying the 3.6 update and then re-opening the catalogue?

Why are you pointing to the back-up catalog and not the current one ?

Just make a copy of the backup catalogue where the original was, renaming as appropriate.

The different version of LR3 do not differentiate between catalogues (or catalogs as our American cousins quaintly call them!)
