Help Restore game progress after hard reset


Android Question

My Asus K103 tablet was acting wonky and apps were crashing, so I figured a factory reset was the ticket. My son plays a lot of games on it, and I didn't want to erase all of his progress, especially on Minecraft, so I used the Asus backup option and did a backup to my Google Drive.

Well, the factory reset is now a fait accompli, and I have this folder full of abu files on my Google Drive. I can copy-paste them into the Asus backup folder if I connect my tablet to my PC. And my apps have reinstalled, as I signed in with my Google ID via the initial setup wizard. But...the apps themselves are still starting at zero. Is there any way to restore game progress, or am I screwed?
