Yes, there's a way! You can get this data by unzipping the backup file, look for exportDescriptor.properties, open it and check for the buildNumber. buildNumber indicates the version of Confluence. You can check Confluence version against the build number by referring to this page: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+Build+Information

awesome :-)
