Before you re-entered the data into the resulting data file that you restored, did you first check that it was error free (using the built-in file integrity checking function Verify Data)?
If you verify the data and it detects errors, it is best to first resolve those issues before embarking on any major data re-entry.
There is an error log called "QBWIN.LOG" that would show the errors detected in the file.
If there is enough detail found with regard to the problem, you may see dates, names, accounts, amounts or other descriptions that would allow you to identify the problem transaction or list area that requires further investigation.
The Technical Support Team may be able to assist you in identifying and resolving those issue.
If after consulting with them they find that the issue would require further escalation, they can refer you to the Data Recovery Team.

R8 was the final release of 2008/09 and thus that is the version you should be using.
However, 2008/09 was one of the worst releases of QuickBooks on the market ever!
You should really upgrade to the current version and I am fairly confident that the issue of rebuilding and losing data will not happen.
The rebuild and corrupting data was a huge issue in the R7 release of 2008/09, but you aren't using that one luckily!
