iDrive backup indicates incorrect days since last backup

The flyover text of my iDrive system tray icon has begun to report incorrect days since last backup - e. g., "Backed up 245 days ago," when I've only been using the service for around 30 days. Per chance has anyone been through this, and found a solution (other than total R&R)? I've poked around related .INI, text and log files but nothing is jumping out.

I've gone round and round with iDrive and still no solution. Since my original post I've removed and reinstalled. The "Next Scheduled Backup," set for every day at 0300 (shown in iDrive Classic) reports two days into the future (when it should be tomorrow), and the flyover now shows the last backup 123 days ago (but the icon is green, not yellow). iDrive Explorer has also ceased to function, even after shutting down and restarting. I've given iDrive until Monday to come up with a solution or I'm moving on to another alternative. This buggy an application I'll never be comfortable trusting with a restore.

Installed latest 05 Nov version (there have been several patches since iDrive and I began going 'round and 'round) and - fingers crossed - the issues seem to have been resolved.
