zoek_backup was created when you ran Zoek.  It's sort of a quarantine folder where it puts stuff it removes.  Nothing to worry about.

As long as Zoeg didn't remove anything it should have.  The folder is just insurance in case Zoeg makes a mistake and removes something important that you want to restore.  If things are working OK now then removing the folder won't hurt anything.
