Opening ProE backup files with SW 2007 SP5.0

I have several ProE files (.prt.1, .asm.1, and .drw.1 formats) that I need to import to SolidWorks, but I'm not having any luck. The converter dialogue box appears, but regardless of what I select, I get an error message: "ERROR: Unable to convert this file. Conversion cancelled." and then "The following file names entered were invalid, not found, locked or of an incompatible type:[directory and file name]".

I tried removing the .1 extension, but still no success - I get the same first error message, and then "Unknown error opening [directory and file name]".

Anyone have any thoughts on what to try next? Thanks in advance for the help.
