I can't help (except to say - if the archive took files off your hard drive, copy them back before trying to open) but I can tell you will need to give full details of the symptoms you get - messages in full please. Also operating system.
If the files come from very old versions, like pre-CS (1.0, 1.5 and 2.0) you have to open them in older versions of InDesign first. Try to open them in CS6 (this is the oldest version which comes with the CC subscription), otherwise go back to CS4 which could open every previous version and save it with the version you use.
You shouldn’t have to do that at all. I’ve opened 1.5 files in CC2014 and
they open fine.
