I have an old backup made with ASUS PC Tool 1.0.0.6 that I need to restore to my resurrected Padfone 2 (by replacing broken charging port and battery).
But when I plug in my Padfone, I only get options to backup, the restore button is missing.
How do I restore the backup?
I've tried to restore to another Asus device (Zenfone 4 2014, running KitKat), but I did only get images and contacts, not program data which is the important stuff.

The backup was most likely made having Android 4.3, prior to Kitkat upgrade. The resurrected Padfone 2 is running Android 4.1.

Can't you retrieve the data like images, documents and music manually from the backup file?

No, the program data is not restored on the Zenfone 4 2014, only images, contacts etc. I suspect KitKat prevents the useful stuff to be restored, as I have been able to properly restore program data from backups in other devices prior to KitKat, like LG Optimus 2X (Android 4.0).
Hence, I think PadFone 2 with pre-KitKat OS is the way to go, just need the "restore" button visible. Have no idea why it isn't available.

It's probably not working because you're trying to restore data form a different Android version...

Thanks, then I'd likely need 4.3 on my Padfone 2. Where can I get it? I only find 4.1 and 4.4 for PadFone 2 when I look.

If it's not on their official website, they probably skipped 4.3 for the Padfone 2...
