Restoring GPOs

Hello,
I recently created new GPOs on a DC (that had been built and an image taken of it) and backed them up to a flash drive. I rolled back to the imaged version of the server and now I cannot restore the GPOs I previously backed up. I can import them with no problem, but I'm wondering why the restore isn't working. When I go thru the restore wizard, it tells me that no backups are found when I can easily see them by browsing my flash drive.

Thanks!
