You shouldn't need to restore your SavedVariables files after updating an addon on the same computer, unless you used a program like the Curse Client to completely uninstall the addon and remove its saved variables before installing the update, which is not necessary; you can just install the update right over the top of the previous version.

As for your actual problem, try deleting your entire WTF folder (after making a backup) and then logging into WoW, and logging back out. Now run a search on your computer for the WTF folder, to see where WoW is creating the new one.

Finally, if you are copying files into the SavedVariables (or any other) folder while WoW is running, that is your problem -- if WoW is running, it's holding a copy of every file in memory, and will write those copies to disk when it exits, overwriting the new files you moved into the folder. Make sure WoW is not running, and then copy the files, and then start WoW.
