Restore the backup after Firmware upgrade

I have just finished installing the new firmware directly from the (not so new any more) nokia ovi suite. This ovi suite has guided me through the firmware-upgrade process, by backing up the data from the phone. To my surprise, after having upgraded the phone, the backup-file could not be found. Neither can I find a backup-file, and that is kind of strange, as I have waited for a couple of minutes for the backup-process to proceed, and the backup was confirmed as well.

To me it is just strange now that I have not been asked where I wanted the backup file to be stored. Still, Ovi suite has installed a "backup" sub-folder in my document folder, which is empty.

Any Ideas are welcome. Where could I look for my data?
