X90 information?

I recently purchased a used x90 which appears to have been used very minimally at best. It is equipped with mk1 controller and usb cnc software. I am what you would call a novice at this but am willing to dig through information and figure it out. It appears that at one time there was a wealth of information out there on setting one of these machines up and tweaking it to perform correctly. I am having xy drifting issues and would like to diagnose what is causing this but can't seem to find information relevant to x90 in particular. Was the information archived somewhere in which I can dig through to try and piece together a solution to my issue or where all those threads just trashed?

The XY drifting issues are usually software related, and the reason why we don't sell the PBX-USB any longer. We designed the PBX-USB from schematics provided by Andrej to support his software. Andrej kept introducing new features into the software that was causing problems and it became a support nightmare for us. Andrejs solution was to force our customers to upgrade to his newer faster boards, for which he wouldn't supply schematics for - thereby forcing you to source boards made only by him. We obviously told him to take a hike.

The last known stable versions of the software are here:

Can someone please answer which link is the correct one?

I'd like to get my pbx usb going without sinking anymore money into this thing.
